Hi, this is Jennifer Yoo with ENGLISH WITH YOO! 안녕하세요 English with Yoo!의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.

오늘의 영어 표현은 show off입니다.

Today we’re going to find out what it means to show off but first let’s listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘show off’ 가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Show off

Mike: Hey congratulations on winning 1st place in the swimming contest.

Jason: Oh, you heard about it? Well, thank you.

Mike: Why are you so shy about it? If I were you, I would be showing off the 1st place medal to everyone.

Jason: I know, but you know I’m not a show-off.

Mike: That’s true.

Mike가 Jason에게 “Hey congratulations on winning 1st place in the swimming contest. 야, 축하해! 너 수영 대회에서 1등 했다며?”라고 하자 Jason이 부끄러워하면서 “Oh, you heard about it? Well, thank you. 아, 그 소식 들었구나. 고마워.”라고 하네요. Mike가 “Why are you so shy about it? If I were you, I would be showing off the 1st place medal to everyone. 그런데 너 왜 그렇게 부끄러워하니? 내가 너라면 사람들한테 다 자랑하겠다.”라고 하자 Jason 이 “I know, but you know I’m not a show-off. 알아, 그런데 난 뭘 내세울 줄 모르잖아.”라고 대답하네요. Keep today’s phrase ‘show off’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

오늘의 표현은 show off입니다. Show off means to display or cause someone or something to be seen and admired. So if you are showing off yourself to others, it means that you are trying to impress others with you abilities or possessions. 동사로서 ‘show off’ 는 사람들 칭찬도 받고 주목도 받고 싶은 마음에 ‘무엇을 자랑하다, 뽐내다, 또는 과시하다’라는 뜻입니다. Also keep in mind that you can use ‘show-off’ as a noun. So if you are a show-off it means that you brag or flaunt about something in order to bring attention to yourself. 그리고 명사로 ‘show-off’는 ‘뽐내는 사람, 과시하는 버릇이 있는 사람’ 이라는 뜻이고요. 이제 예를 들어 볼까요? Let me give you some examples. “Heidi is showing off to her friends that she bought the latest smartphone.” 라고 하면 “하이디는 최신형 스마트폰을 샀다고 친구들에게 자랑한다.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “Alex is such a show-off.”라고 하면 “알렉스는 순전히 자기 자랑만 해.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what the expression ‘show off’ means right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.
