오늘 본문은 저와 Jason의 대화인데요. Jason이 “I am so proud of you! 네가 정말 자랑스러워! Despite your exhaustion, you pressed on towards the race and finished well. Congratulations! 완전히 지쳤는데도 불구하고, 끝까지 분발해서 경주를 잘 마쳤잖아. 축하해!”라고 하자, 저는 “Thanks so much! I still can’t believe I pressed on until the end. 정말 고마워! 나도 마지막까지 밀어붙일 수 있었다는 게 믿기지 않아.”라고 말합니다. 그러자 Jason은 다시 “You did well! 잘 했어!”라고 칭찬합니다.

Today’s expression is press on. Press on means to continue doing something with determination and despite setbacks. Press on또는 press ahead은 ‘단호하게 밀고 나가다’, ‘어려움이 있더라도 추진하다’라는 뜻으로 사용됩니다.

In today’s conversation, despite my exhaustion, I pressed on towards the race and finished well. 오늘 본문에서 Jason은 제게 지쳤는데도 불구하고 경주를 잘 끝냈다고 합니다. “I am so proud of you! Despite your exhaustion, you pressed on towards the race and finished well. Congratulations!”라고요. 이렇게 힘들고 어려운 상황에서도 무언가를 밀어붙일 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 바로 ‘press ahead’ 또는 ‘press on’입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s phrase. 그럼 예문을 통해 오늘 표현을 좀 더 자세히 알아보겠습니다. “I will press on with the plan despite what other people say.”는 “다른 사람들의 의견에도 불구하고 난 그 계획을 추진할거다.”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example. “Despite their previous failures, the students promised to press on with their efforts to make their science experiment a success.”, 이 문장에도 오늘 배운 표현이 들어있는데요. “지난 실패에도 불구하고, 학생들은 과학 실험을 성공시키기 분발할 것을 다짐했다.” 로 해석할 수 있습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
