What does it mean to overdo something? Let’s find out, but first we will begin by listening to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘overdo it’이 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Overdo it

Mike: Hey, I think I’m overdoing the workout routine during the basketball practice. My knees have been in a lot of pain these days.

Jason: Oh no! I had something similar happen to me last time. The doctor told me that I should refrain from any physical activities and let my knees recover. However, I can do very light exercises and stretches but not overdo it. So you should do the same.

Mike: Ah, I see. Thanks for letting me know.

Mike가 “Hey, I think I’m overdoing the workout routine during the basketball practice. 야, 나 말이야. 팀과 농구 연습 할 때 운동을 너무 지나치게 한 것 같아. My knees have been in a lot of pain these days. 요즘 무릎이 무척 아프네.”라고 하자 Jason이 “I had something similar happen to me last time. The doctor told me that I should refrain from any physical activities and let my knees recover. 아이고, 지난번에 나도 그랬어. 그때 의사가 나한테 이렇게 말하더라고. 이런저런 신체 활동도 자제하고 지나치게 무리 가는 활동을 해서는 안 된다는 거야. 그러면서 무릎이 회복될 수 있게 해줘야 한대. However, I can do very light exercises and stretches but not overdo it. So you should do the same. 물론 아주 가벼운 운동과 몸을 쭉 뻗는 동작은 할 수 있지만 그런 것도 과하게는 하지 말라고 했어. 너도 그렇게 해봐.”라고 Mike에게 설명해주네요. Mike가 “Ah, I see. Thanks for letting me know! 아, 그렇구나. 알려줘서 고마워.” 라고 하더라고요. Keep today’s phrase ‘overdo it’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

오늘의 영어표현은 Overdo it입니다. Overdo it means to do too much of something, to exaggerate something, or to work too hard to the point that you become too restless and tired. Over는 ‘지나치다, 과하다’ 는 뜻이고, do는 무엇을 하다 라는 말이죠. 따라서 overdo it 하면 무엇을 지나치게 하다, 무리하다, 또는 과장하다’ 는 의미입니다. 운동도 너무 많이 하면 몸을 다칠 수 있고요, 다이어트도 너무 지나치게 하면 위험할 수 있죠. 이런 상황에서 쓸 수 있는 말입니다. Now let me give you some examples. 이제 예를 들어 볼까요? “You’ve painted your room walls all blue! I think you’re overdoing it.” 라고 하면 “야, 네 방을 온통 파란색으로 칠했구나. 너무 과한 것 같다.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “It’s best not to put too much salt in the food. Overdoing it is unhealthy for you.” 라고 하면 “음식 할 때 소금 너무 많이 넣지 마. 지나치게 많이 쓰면 몸에 안 좋아.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to overdo it right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.
