Talk your way out of something

Jason: Hey, I heard that you’re the first one in the class to present your project.

I tried talking my way out of this by speaking to the professor but it didn’t work. He said I have to present first no matter what. 그래서 교수님께 나 먼저 못하겠다고 말씀 드렸더니 안 된다고 하시면서 꼭 내가 먼저 해야 한다고 하시는 거야.”라고 하네요. 이어 Jason이 “You can’t talk your way out of that with your professor.

오늘 영어표현은 talk your way out of something입니다. Talk your way out of something means to get out of a difficult situation by verbally persuading the other person or giving a smart explanation. It basically means that you persuade others that you should do something or not do something by the reasons you give. Talk your way out of something은 변명을 대고 …을 모면하다 또는 …을 안 하려고 적당히 이유를 대다. 라는 뜻입니다. 곤란한 상황에 부닥쳤을 때 그럴듯한 말로써 위기를 모면한다는 얘기죠. Let me give you an example. Jack어머니가 Jack에게 설거지하라고 합니다. 그런데 Jack은 친구들이랑 약속이 있다며 안 하려고 합니다. 그러자 Jack 어머니는 이렇게 말합니다.“Jack, stop talking your way out of doing the dishes and just do it.” “적당히 변명해서 빠져나갈 생각 하지 말고 그냥 해.”라고 말이죠. 또 다른 예를 들어보겠습니다. “If I have to do something I don’t want to do, I will make sure that I talk my way out of it.” 라고 하면 “혹시 내가 싫어하는 일을 맡게 되면 잘 말해서 살짝 빠질 거야.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to talk your way out of something right? Now let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
