오늘의 표현은 I’m broke 입니다.


What does it mean to be broke? Let’s find out, but first we will listen to today’s conversation. Listen carefully. 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘I’m broke’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

I’m broke
Jason: Hey, a few of my friends are planning a trip to Hawaii next summer. Do you want to join us?
Jen: I’d love to but I can’t. I’m broke.
Jason: It’s okay. Even though you say you are broke right now, it’s never too late to start saving up for it. Think about it and let me know.
Jen: Okay.

본문에서 Jason은 제게 내년 여름에 친구들과 함께 하와이 여행을 가고 싶냐고 묻습니다. “Hey, a few of my friends are planning a trip to Hawaii next summer. Do you want to join us?” 그러자 저는 “I’d love to but I can’t. I’m broke. 나도 그러고 싶지만 안돼. 나 빈털터리거든.”이라며 거절합니다. 그러자Jason이 다시 “It’s okay. Even though you say you are broke right now, it’s never too late to start saving up for it. Think about it and let me know. 지금 당장 돈이 없어도 여행가기 전 까지 모으면 되니까, 다시 생각하고 알려줘.”라고 하는데요. 저도 “Okay. 알았어.”라고 답합니다. Now keep today’s expression, ‘I’m broke’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Jen: I’d love to but I can’t. I’m broke.
Jason: It’s okay. Even though you say you are broke right now, it’s never too late to start saving up for it. Think about it and let me know.
Jen: Okay.

Today’s expression is I’m broke. I’m broke는 ‘난 빈털터리다’, ‘돈이 한 푼도 없다’는 의미입니다. If I say that I’m broke, it means that I have no money. It can be at a certain moment or along a period of time that I’m without money. 지금 당장 돈이 없거나, 한동안 돈이 궁할 때도 쓸 수 있습니다. 또 어떤 일을 할 때 자금이 부족하거나 실제로 파산을 했을 때도 사용하는 표현입니다.

In today’s conversation Jason asks me to join him and his friends on a trip to Hawaii next summer. I respond by saying, “I’d love to but I can’t. I’m broke.” 오늘 본문에서 Jason이 제게 내년 여름에는 친구들과 하와이 여행을 가자고 권유하자 저는 가고 싶지만 돈이 없다고 했습니다. “I’d love to but I can’t. I’m broke.”라고요.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. 그럼 예문을 통해 오늘 표현을 더 자세히 알아보겠습니다. “I wish I can help you financially but I’m broke. Sorry.” 라는 문장이 있습니다. 해석하면 “너를 경제적으로 돕고 싶지만, 돈이 한 푼도 없어. 미안해” 라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example. “I’m broke. Can you lend me ten dollars?” 라는 문장은 “내가 지금 돈이 하나도 없는데, 10불만 빌려줄 수 있니?” 는 뜻이 되겠죠. ‘I’m broke’라는 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 마지막으로 오늘의 대화를 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
