오늘 영어표현은 to be a regular입니다. The word ‘regular’ can be an adjective or a noun. When the word is used as an adjective, it means ‘orderly’, ‘constant’ or ‘done frequently’. When the word is used as a noun, you can use it to describe someone who is a consistent customer or a member. Regular 라는 단어는 형용사로 ‘규칙적인’ ‘일정한’을 의미하는데요. 명사로는 ‘단골’이라는 뜻입니다. For example, I’m ‘a regular’ at a coffee shop in my neighborhood because I go there every morning. So all the baristas know me by name and they’ll know what I will order. 저는 매일 아침 동네에 있는 커피숍에 가는데요, 그래서 거기서 일하는 사람들은 제가 ‘a regular’ 그러니까 단골손님이라는 걸 알고 있습니다. 이름도 알고 있고요. 게다가 제가 뭘 주문할지도 알고 있죠. 저는 그 가게 단골손님이고요. 영어로는 a regular가 되는 겁니다. 이제 예를 들어 볼까요? Let me give you an example sentence. “I’ll order for us. I’m a regular here and I know what’s good.” 라고 하면 “내가 주문할게. 나는 이 집 단골이라 어떤 게 맛있는지 잘 알아.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to be a regular right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.
