Welcome to ENGLISH WITH YOO! 안녕하세요 English with Yoo!의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.

오늘의 표현은 Freak out 입니다.


Before we find out what it means to freak out, let’s listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘to freak out’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

Freak out
Alice: Oh man! What do I do? What do I do? Ah!
Jen: Why are you freaking out?
Alice: Ugh! I’m freaked out because I accidently dropped my car keys where the elevator door opens and closes! What do I do?
Jen: Don’t worry. We can retrieve it. Let’s go to the lobby security and tell him what had happened. He would be able to help you.

본문에서 Alice가 제게 “Oh man! What do I do? What do I do? Ah! 어떡하지? 어떡하지? 아~!”라고 하자 제가 “Why are you freaking out? 너 왜 이렇게 흥분하고 난리야?”라고 묻습니다. 이어 Alice가 “Ugh! I’m freaked out because I accidently dropped my car keys where the elevator door opens and closes! What do I do? 내가 실수로 차 열쇠를 엘리베이터 문 사이에 떨어뜨렸어. 어떡하지?”라고 계속 흥분하자, 제가 “Don’t worry. We can retrieve it. Let’s go to the lobby security and tell him what had happened. He would be able to help you. 걱정하지마. 열쇠를 다시 찾을 수 있을 거야. 로비 직원한테 가서 상황을 말해보자. 도와 줄 수 있을 거야.”라고 했습니다. Now keep today’s expression ‘Freak out’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Freak out
Alice: Oh man! What do I do? What do I do? Ah!
Jen: Why are you freaking out?
Alice: Ugh! I’m freaked out because I accidently dropped my car keys where the elevator door opens and closes! What do I do?

오늘의 표현은 freak out입니다. To freak out means to become very excited, surprised or upset to the point of irrational behaviors. It simply means to lose ones’ self-control and go ballistic. Freak out은 매우 흥분하다, 놀라다, 또는 기겁하다 라는 뜻입니다. 정신을 못 차리고 엉뚱한 행동을 할 정도로 불안하거나 놀란 상황이란 말이죠. A person may freak out because of many different reasons. It may be because of a person or a situation. In today’s conversation Alice is freaking out because she accidently dropped her car keys in between the elevator doors. 오늘 본문에서 제가 Alice에게 왜 이렇게 흥분하냐고 묻자, Alice는 실수로 차 열쇠를 엘리베이터 문 사이에 떨어뜨렸다고 말했습니다. “Ugh! I’m freaked out because I accidently dropped my car keys where the elevator door opens and closes! What do I do?” 라고요. 저도 아마 그런 일이 생기면 기겁할 것 같아요.

그럼 예문을 통해 오늘 표현에 대해 더 자세히 알아보겠습니다. “Lisa freaked out when she saw a spider on her desk.”라는 문장은 “리사가 책상 위에 있는 거미를 보고 너무나 놀랐다.” 는 뜻입니다. 놀라 자빠졌다고 할 정도로 심하게 놀란거죠. Here is another example sentence. “I freaked out and got very upset when I found out I didn’t pass the test.”라는 문장은 “난 시험에 떨어진 걸 알고, 이성을 잃을 정도로 화가 많이 났다”라는 내용입니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time. 마지막으로 오늘의 대화를 한 번 더 들어보겠습니다.

Let’s review what we have learned today. To freak out means to become very excited, surprised or upset to the point of irrational behaviors. FREAK OUT. Now try using this expression on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
