I’ll give you a daily introduction to some meaningful and useful everyday English words and phrases! So let’s get started today!

Hi everyone, this is Jennifer Yoo and with ENGLISH WITH YOO! 안녕하세요 English with Yoo!의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.


오늘의 영어 표현은 (Not) My cup of tea입니다.

Has anyone ever told you that something is not his or her cup of tea? What does that mean? Let’s find out! 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘(not) my cup of tea’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

(Not) My cup of tea
Jody: Hey, would you like to go shopping with me tomorrow?
Roger: Did you say shopping? To be honest, shopping is really not my cup of tea.
Jody: What do you mean?
Roger: Well, shopping doesn’t interest me and plus I don’t like walking around the mall for hours.
Jody: Fine. I’ll ask someone else.

Jody가 친구랑 쇼핑을 하러 가고 싶은가 봐요. Jody가 Roger에게 “Hey, would you like to go shopping with me tomorrow? 내일 나랑 같이 쇼핑하러 갈래?”라고 묻자, Roger는 “Did you say shopping? 쇼핑 가자고? To be honest 솔직히 말해서 shopping is really not my cup of tea 나 쇼핑하러 가는 거 별로 안 좋아해, 내 취향에 안 맞거든.”이라고 답하네요. Jody가 “What do you mean? 무슨 말이야?”라고 하자 Roger는 “Well, shopping doesn’t interest me and plus I don’t like walking around the mall for hours. 나 쇼핑에 관심도 없고, 몇 시간씩 쇼핑몰 돌아다니는 것도 싫어”라고 하네요. 그러자 Jody가 “Fine. I’ll ask someone else. 알겠어. 그럼 다른 사람이랑 가야지 뭐.”라고 하더라고요.

Keep today’s phrase ‘(not) my cup of tea’ in mind. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

(Not) My cup of tea
Jody: Hey, would you like to go shopping with me tomorrow?
Roger: Did you say shopping? To be honest, shopping is really not my cup of tea.

오늘의 표현은 (not) my cup of tea입니다.

If something is not your cup of tea, you don’t like it very much and it’s something you are not interested in. ‘(Not) My cup of tea’는 좋아하거나 즐기지 않는 것, 내 취향이 아닌 것을 표현할 때 쓸 수 있습니다. 간단히 말해서 ‘내가 좋아하는 스타일이 아니다’ 정도의 의미죠. Remember that you can take out the word ‘not’ and say that something is my cup of tea. If something is your cup of tea, it means that you like it and you’re interested. 그런데 (not) my cup of tea에서 ‘not’을 빼면 반대의 뜻이 됩니다. 따라서 내가 좋아하는 것, 관심있는 것을 가리킬 때 사용할 수 있는 겁니다. I can give you an example. 예를 하나 들어볼까요? If Jamie doesn’t like watching horror movies, 제이미가 공포영화를 싫어하면 you can say “Horror movies aren’t Jamie’s cup of tea. 제이미는 공포영화를 좋아하지 않아.”라고 말할 수 있어요. 오늘의 표현, ‘(not) my cup of tea’ 꼭 기억하시고요. Now we’ll listen to this conversation for the last time.
