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

오늘의 영어 표현은 never say never입니다.

What does ‘never say never’ mean? Let’s find out, but first we’ll start by listening to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘never say never’ 가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

Never say never
Alice: Hey, what’s wrong? Is something on your mind?
Jason: I was just thinking about how I would never get the position that I want at this company. It’s impossible because they are on a hiring freeze for years now.
Alice: Come on, why would you say that? Never say never because it could happen.

Alice가 Jason에게 “Hey, what’s wrong? Is something on your mind?
무슨 일이 있어? 뭐 마음에 걸리는 거라도 있는 거야?
라고 하자 Jason이 “I was just thinking about how I would never get the position that I want at this company. 내가 이 회사에서 원하는 위치까지 절대로 못 갈 거 같은 생각이 들어서 그래. It’s impossible because the company has been on a hiring freeze for years now. 벌써 몇 년째 사람을 안 뽑고 있는 거 보면 불가능하다고 봐야 해.” 라고 하네요. 이어 Alice가 “Come on, why would you say that? Never say never because it could happen. 왜 그렇게 말을 해? 사람 일은 모르는 거야. 언제 다시 사원을 채용할 지 누가 알아.” 라고 하더라고요. Keep today’s expression ‘never say never’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Never say never
Alice: Hey, what’s wrong? Is something on your mind?
Jason: I was just thinking about how I would never get the position that I want at this company. It’s impossible because they are on a hiring freeze for years now.
Alice: Come on, why would you say that? Never say never because it could happen.

Today’s expression is NEVER SAY NEVER. This means that anything can happen so it is best to keep all options open and not completely dismiss it. It basically means to never rule out anything as impossible. ‘Never say never’는 ‘절대 안 된다는 말을 하지 마라. 모든 일은 일어날 수 있다. 가능성을 늘 열어 둬라.’라는 뜻입니다. 부정적인 말을 하며 자신 없어 하는 사람에게 “never say never”라고 얘기해주면서 용기를 북돋아 줄 수 있습니다. “결코 포기하지 마. 불가능은 없어’ 라고 말이죠. 이제 예를 들어 볼까요? Let me give you some examples. “You can overcome this hardship so never say never.” 라고 하면 “넌 꼭 이 어려움을 이겨낼 수 있어. 절대로 못 할 거라고 말 하지 마.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “Never say never. You never know if it could happen.” 이라고 하면 “야, 사람 일은 모르는 거야. 혹시 그런 일이 생길지 누가 알아.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what the expression ‘never say never’ right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.

Never say never

Let’s review. Never say never means to never rule out anything as impossible. NEVER SAY NEVER. Now try using this expression on your own. 그럼 다음 시간에 다시 뵙겠습니다. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Bye bye!
