오늘 영어표현은 eat like a bird입니다. If a person eats like a bird, he or she does not eat very much. To ‘eat like a bird’는 소식하다, 음식을 조금씩밖에 안 먹다’라는 뜻입니다. 영어 표현 그대로 새처럼 조금만 먹는다. 라고 생각하시면 됩니다. If you think about it, birds are much smaller than human beings. So obviously birds must have a smaller stomach than we do. Thus if someone eats like a bird, they are really eating small portions. Now you know what it means to eat like a bird right? Then we will now listen to the conversation for the last time.
