Man of his word


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: Man of his word입니다.

Someone who keeps their word is someone you can trust. Deanna and Joe shared with me that there is someone special in each of their lives that has truly kept their word. 그럼 먼저 제가Deanna와 Joe 와 함께 나눈 대화내용을 들어보시겠습니다.
오늘의 영어 표현은Man of his word입니다. Listen carefully!

Man of his word
Deanna: This is hard. My father was a man of his word. He is now deceased but anything he said he was very honest and he worked very hard. And what he said is what he did. His word was his deed. So I loved him very much. He has been deceased for two years.
Joe: Yes, my dad is absolutely a man of his word. He has never let me down. He has taught me so much and he has always kept his promises from day one.

제가 Deanna 와 Joe에게 ‘Is there anyone in your life that is a man of his word?’ 너희들 주변에 약속을 잘 지키는 사람이 있니? 라고 물어봤더니 Deanna 는 ‘아버지는 돌아가셨지만 he is now deceased but anything he said he was very honest, 어떤 경우에도 정직하셨고 and he worked very hard 매우 열심히 일하셨으며. And what he said is what he did. 말씀을 하시면 꼭 실천을 하시는 분이셨다고 하더라고요.

그리고Joe도 아버지가 생각난다고 하네요. “Yes, my dad is absolutely a man of his word” 아버지는 반드시 약속을 지키셨고 지금까지 가족들을 실망시키시는 일이 없었다고 합니다.

오늘의 영어 표현 ‘Man of his word’ 인데요, Man of his word or a women of her words is a phrase to describe someone you can trust because you know they will do what they say they will do.

Word / W O R D / Word, 는 ‘단어, 낱말/ 말’ 이라는 뜻이죠. 그래서 ‘Man of his word 또는 woman of her word’ 약속을 지키는 사람 또는 믿을 수 있는 사람’ 이라는 의미입니다.

그럼 여기서 오늘의 대화를 다시 한번 들어보시겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요~!
