오늘의 영어 표현은 Pull it off입니다.

In today’s conversation, I tell Tony that he can achieve something that seems difficult for him do. Let’s find out what I think he can pull off. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘Pull it off’ 이 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Pull it off
Jen: Wow, you got up so early!
Tony: Yes, the 5K race is coming up, so I’m training and exercising a lot.
Jen: That’s good! Wait…if I remember correctly, you finished in the top 10 last year didn’t you?
Tony: Yes but I injured my ankle after that competition so it’s been taking a lot more training than before.
Jen: You’ll be fine and I believe you can pull it off.
Tony: Thanks.
제가 아침 일찍 운동하고 있는 Tony를 보자마자 이렇게 말을 했죠. “Wow, you got up so early! 와, 일찍 일어났네!” 그러자 Tony는 “Yes, the 5K race is coming up 응 5K 경기가 곧 열리거든 so I’m training and exercising a lot 그래서 열심히 훈련하고 운동하는 중이야”라고 하네요. 제가 “That’s good! 잘하고 있네! Wait, if I remember correctly, you finished in the top 10 last year didn’t you? 내 기억이 맞는다면, 너 전에 아마 위에서 10위 안에 들었지?”라고 묻자 Tony는 “Yes 응, 맞아 but I injured my ankle after that competition 그런데 그 경기에서 발목 부상을 당했지 뭐야 so it’s been taking a lot more training than before 그래서 그전보다 더 열심히 훈련하고 있어”라고 하네요. 그러자 제가 “You’ll be fine and I believe you can pull it off 괜찮을 거야 그리고 나는 네가 잘 해내리라 믿어”라고 용기를 줬습니다. Now, we’ll listen to the conversation again. Listen carefully.

오늘의 영어표현은 Pull it off입니다.

‘Pull it off’ means that you succeed in doing something that is difficult, and to achieve something that either no one else seemed able to do or that people never expected you to accomplish. 아무나 하기 힘든 일을 해내거나, 남들이 기대조차 하고 있지 않던 일을 이루어 냈을 때 ‘pull it off’라는 표현을 쓸 수 있습니다. ‘Pull’이 끌어당기다라는 뜻이니까요 그 뒤에 ‘off’가 붙으면 ‘어떤 성과를 밖으로 끌어내서 보이게 하다’라는 뜻이 되는 것입니다. Here is an example. 이해를 돕기 위해서 예를 하나 들어볼게요. Asking for a raise is nerve-wrecking, 월급을 올려 달라고 하는 것은 정말 진땀이 나는 일이죠, even if you know you deserve it. 충분히 자격이 있다고 해도 말이죠. So say that your colleague, who has worked less than a year at the company, managed to successfully receive a raise. 회사에서 일한 지 1년이 채 되지 않은 직원의 월급이 오른 경우를 들어 볼게요. That is when you can say, 이렇게 말할 수 있어요. “You asked for a raise and the boss gave it to you? 사장님께 월급을 올려달라고 말씀드리니까 인상해 주신 거야? How did you pull it off? 어떻게 그런일을 해냈어 ?”라고 물어볼 수 있어요. 오늘의 영어표현 ‘Pull it off’ 꼭 기억하시기바랍니다. Now we’ll listen to this conversation for the last time.
