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


오늘의 표현은 grow on you입니다.

Before we find out what today’s expression means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. Listen carefully. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘grow on you’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Grow on you
Jen: You’re eating kimchi? I thought you didn’t like it at all!
Jason: I didn’t like it when I first tried it. However after eating it a couple of more times, it has grown on me.
Jen: I knew the taste of kimchi would grow on you someday.

본문에서 제가 Jason에게 “You’re eating kimchi? I thought you didn’t like it at all! 너 김치 먹고 있니? 김치는 아예 안 좋아하는 줄 알았어!”라고 묻자, Jason이 “I didn’t like it when I first tried it. However after eating it a couple of more times, it has grown on me. 처음 먹어봤을 때는 좋아하지 않았어. 하지만 몇 번 더 먹으니까 점점 좋아지더라.”라고 대답하는데요. 그러자 저도 “I knew the taste of kimchi would grow on you someday. 너도 언젠가는 김치를 점점 좋아하게 될 줄 알았어.”라고 말합니다.

Now keep today’s expression ‘grow on you’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Today’s expression is grow on you. If someone or something grows on you, you like it more and more than you did at first and you appreciate it more. Grow on you 는 무언가가 점점 좋아진다’는 뜻입니다. 그리고 누군가가 점점 좋아질 때도 ‘grow on (somebody)’라는 표현을 쓸 수 있습니다.

Jason은 원래 김치를 좋아하지 않았는데요, 오늘 본문에서 제가 Jason이 김치를 먹는 모습을 보고 놀랍니다. 그러자 Jason이 처음 먹어봤을 때는 좋아하지 않았지만, 몇 번 더 먹으니까 점점 좋아하게 됐다고 말합니다. “ I didn’t like it when I first tried it. However after eating it a couple of more times, it has grown on me.”라고요. 이렇게 무언가 또는 누군가가 점점 좋아질 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 바로 ‘grow on you’입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “The new plan that Steve came up with grew on me as I thought about it more.”라는 문장을 해석하면 “좀 더 생각해보니까, Steve가 제안한 새 계획도 점점 마음에 들어.” 라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “Korean food is growing on me.”는 “한국 음식이 점점 더 좋아져.” 라고 해석할 수 있습니다. ‘Grow on me’, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다.
