Ears are burning
Emily: Hey, I saw your friend Anna yesterday. She was telling me about your birthday party. And she said it was the best party that she had been to all year.
Jacky: Wow, that’s why my ears were burning.

Emily는Jacky에게 ‘Hey, I saw your friend Anna yesterday’ 어제 네 친구 애나를 봤어 ‘She was telling me about your birthday party’ 걔가 너 생일 파티 얘기를 하더라 ‘And she said it was the best party that she had been to all year’ 그러면서 자기가 일년 내내 갔던 파티들 중에서 최고였다고 하던데 라고 얘기하니까, Jacky 는 “Wow, that’s why my ears were burning 아, 그래서 내 귀가 간질간질했구나” 라고 대답하더라구요.
Now let’s listen to a portion of today’s conversation.

Ears are burning
Emily: She was telling me about your birthday party. And she said it was the best party that she had been to all year.
Jacky: Wow, that’s why my ears were burning.

오늘의 영어 표현 Ears are burning / ears, E A R S / are A R E / burning B U R N I N G. 말그대로하면, “Ears 귀가, are burning 탄다, 귀가 불 타고 있어” 가 되는데요. 우리는 보통, 누군가가 없는 상황에서 그 사람에 대한 이야기를 하게 되면, “아마 그 사람 지금쯤 귀가 간질간질 할거야” 라고 얘기하죠. 네, 그렇게 뒤에서 얘기를 하면 귀가 간지럽다는 표현이 바로 Ears are burning 입니다. 그러니까 “If people say ‘my ears were burning’, 만약my ears were burning 이라고 얘기한다면 it means someone was talking about them, but they weren’t there to hear about it. 누군가가 그 사람이 없을 때, 그 사람에 대해 얘기하는 상황을 가르키게 되겠죠. Imagine this situation. 여러분들도 한 번 상상해보세요. Now, someone is talking about you in another place, not here. 지금 누군가가 어딘가에서 여러분에 대한 얘길 하고 있다면요. 어째, 귀가 좀 간질간질 하신가요?

오늘의 영어 표현 ‘Ears are burning’ 꼭 기억해두시고요. 그럼 여기서 오늘의 대화를 다시 한번 들어보시겠습니다. Listen carefully.
