Today’s expression is ins and outs (of something). If someone tells you the ins and out of something, they are telling you the details or the successful way to do something. ‘The ins and outs’은 미국인들이 자주 쓰는 영어 표현인데요. '상세하게', '속속들이', '구석구석' 이라는 의미입니다. 어떤 일이나 상황에 대해 자세한 내용을 설명하는 것입니다.

오늘 본문에서 Jason이 Mike에게 "상황이 어떻게 돼가고 있냐"고 묻자 Mike는 "아직 세부적인 것까지 모른다"고 대답했죠. 영어로 “Well, I don’t know all the ins and outs of the situation yet.”라고요. 이렇게 상세한 내용을 알고 싶을 때, 또는 누군가에게 자세한 내용을 알려줄 때 쓸 수 있는 영어 표현이 바로 ‘the ins and outs’입니다.

그럼 오늘의 표현 ‘ins and outs’가 일상에서 어떻게 활용되는지 예문을 통해 살펴볼까요?

Here is another example sentence. “Let me tell you the ins and outs of our business.” 라는 문장은 "내가 우리 사업에 대해 상세히 설명해줄게.”로 해석할 수 있습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
