Mike가 저에게 “Hey, do you think we can go to Hillary’s house within an hour? 우리 한 시간 안에 힐러리 집에 갈 수 있을까?”라고 묻자 제가 “With this kind of traffic, that’s out of the question.이 정도로 막힌 상태에서는 불가능하지.”라고 했습니다. 그러자 Mike가 “Even though it’s out of the question I thought I’d ask. 말도 안 되는 얘기 겠지만 혹시나 해서 물어 본 거야.”라고 대답하네요. Keep today’s phrase ‘out of the question’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

오늘의 표현은 out of the question입니다. When someone says that something is out of the question, it means that it’s impossible and not worth considering. Out of the question 에서 ‘the question’은 ‘질문’이라는 뜻이고 ‘out of’는 ‘무엇의 밖으로’ 라는 뜻이죠. 따라서 ‘Out of the question’은 ‘불가능한 얘기다, 말해 봐야 소용없다, 생각할 가치도 없다.’ 라는 의미입니다. 쉽게 말해서 되지도 않을 질문이다 라고 생각하시면 됩니다. 이제 예를 들어 볼까요? Let me give you some examples. “Buying a house this year is out of the question.” 라고 하면 “올해 새 집 사는 건 불가능해.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “I would love to meet with you this week but Friday is out of the question.”라고 하면 “이번 주에 너랑 만났으면 좋겠는데, 금요일은 도저히 안 되겠어.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what today’s expression ‘out of the question’ means right? Then we’ll listen to the conversation for the last time.
