안녕하세요 English with Yoo! 의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.

English with Yoo! 는 일상생활에서 자주 쓰이는 다양한 표현들을 익히는 시간입니다.
I’ll give you a daily introduction to some meaningful and useful everyday English words and phrases! So let’s get started today!

오늘의 영어 표현은: Get out of your comfort zone 입니다.

Comfort is easy isn’t it? We do things the same old way because it’s comfortable and we’re used to it. But perhaps it’s time to stretch those limits a little and try something new and get out of your comfort zone.

자신의 생활 방식은 하루 아침에 바꾸기 참 힘든데요, 자기가 좋아하는 스타일이 있고, 그게 익숙하기 때문이죠.

That’s what Lindsey has been trying to do for her husband, to get him out of his comfort zone. Let’s go ahead and listen to how Lindsey is getting her husband out of his comfort zone.

Lindsey 의 남편분도 늘 자신이 원래 해오던 생활 방식에서 벗어나는 것을 좋아하지 않는 다고 하는데요, 그럼 먼저 제가 Lindsey와 나눈 대화 내용을 들어보시겠습니다.

Get out of your comfort zone

Lindsey: So I’ve had to buy him things more modern jeans, you know…I’ve had to buy him shoes.
Jen: That must be hard because that’s actually having him get out of his comfort zone.
Lindsey: It is for him. Exactly!
Jen: It’s hard.
Lindsey: He is doing well, so I just do little by little. If I bring him in a tie, he needs to get rid of like four because he’s ties look kind of scary.
Jen: But you’re so kind though, to be really gentle and be patient.
Lindsey: You have to, you have to…

Lindsey tells me that for the past 35 years, her husband has kept most of his clothes and other items. He takes very good care of them but wouldn’t try new things and stick to the old ways of wearing his clothes.

Lindsey씨의 남편 분은 새로운 스타일 보다는 자신이 예전에 입던 옷이나 신발, 넥타이를 하는 것을 더 좋아한다고 하는데요, 그것들이 더 편하고 익숙하기 때문인 것 같다고 했습니다.

그래도 Lindsey 씨는 ‘I’ve had to buy him things like more modern jeans, you know…I’ve had to buy him shoes.’남편을 위해 새로운 스타일의 바지나 신발을 사주려고 노력하고 있다고 하는데요, 그래서 저는 That must be hard because that’s actually having him get out of his comfort zone. 이라고 했죠. 남편 분에게는 get out of his comfort zone 해야 하기 때문에 힘들 수 있겠네요. 라는 말이죠.

오늘의 영어 표현, Get out of your comfort zone, 인데요, get out of ‘~어디어디에서 나오다’ your comfort zone, 편안한 지역에서 즉 말그대로 하면 ‘편안한 곳에서 나오다’는 뜻이죠. 다시 말해 ‘안전지대에서 벗어나다, 편안한 상황에서 벗어나다’는 뜻입니다.

Get out of your comfort zone ‘안전지대에서 벗어나다, 편안한 상황에서 벗어나다- ’ 라는 뜻 있다는 것 기억해두시고요, 그럼 여기서 오늘의 대화를 다시 한번 들어보시겠습니다.

Now let me give you an example sentence in Korean and try to say that in English.

성장을 위해서는 편안한 상황에서 벗어나 위험을 감수하는 것이 필요합니다.

그렇죠! It is necessary to get out of your comfort zone and take risks to grow in life!

오늘의 영어표현 Get out of your comfort zone, ‘ 안전지대에서 벗어나다, 편안한 상황에서 벗어나다 ’, Get out of your comfort zone 꼭 기억해두세요!
