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

오늘의 표현은 I blew it 입니다.


Before we find out what today’s expression means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘I blew it’이 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

I blew it
Alice: So how did you do on your test?
Jason: I blew it! I just blew the whole test!
Alice: Oh no! Why would you say that you blew it?
Jason: Well, I got the results this morning and I got a lot of questions wrong. So it looks like I have to study harder and retake it.
Alice: Don’t worry. I’m sure you won’t blow it next time..

본문에서 Alice가 Jason에게 묻습니다. “So how did you do on your test? 시험 어땠니?” 라는 질문이죠. 그러자 Jason이 답합니다. “I blew it! I just blew the whole test! 망쳤어! 시험을 다 망쳤다고!” 라고요. 이어서 Alice가 “Oh no! Why would you say that you blew it? 아니, 왜 망쳤다는거야?”라고 다시 묻자, Jason이 “Well, I got the results this morning and I got a lot of questions wrong. So it looks like I have to study harder and retake it. 오늘 아침에 결과가 나왔는데 문제를 많이 틀렸어. 더 열심히 공부해서 재시험을 봐야 할 것 같아.”라고 합니다. 그러자 Alice가 “Don’t worry. I’m sure you won’t blow it next time. 걱정 마. 다음 번에는 망치지 않을 거야.”라고 위로합니다.

Now keep today’s expression ‘I blew it’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Today’s expression is blew it. If you blew it, it means that you messed something up, or missed an opportunity. 단어 ‘blew’는 ‘blow’의 과거형입니다. 그리고blow는 ‘입으로 바람을 불다’ 라는 뜻을 가지고 있죠. 만약 여러분이 입으로 무엇을 ‘호’ 하고 불면 입에서 나오는 바람 때문에 그 물건이 날아가버리겠죠. 이렇게 어떤 일을 날려버리거나 망쳤을 때, 또는 어떤 상황이 꼬여버렸을 때도 ‘I blew it!’이라고 말할 수 있습니다. 오늘 본문에서 Alice가 Jason에게 시험 잘 봤냐고 묻자 Jason은 “다 망쳤어. 시험을 다 망쳤다고!”라고 했죠. “I blew it! I just blew the whole test!”이라고요.

그럼 오늘의 표현 ‘I blew it’이 어떻게 일상생활에서 활용되는지 예문을 통해 살펴볼까요? Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “I am so sorry that I blew it again!”는 “미안해, 내가 일을 또 망쳐버렸어!”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “I’m really worried about this job interview. I really don’t want to blow it.” 라는 문장은 "이번 취직 면접 때문에 정말 걱정이야. 진짜 망치고 싶지 않거든.” 이라고 해석할 수 있습니다. Blew it 또는 blow it, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

I blew it
