Speaking of which


Welcome to ENGLISH WITH YOO! 안녕하세요 English with Yoo!의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.

오늘의 표현은 speaking of which입니다.

Before we find out what today’s expression means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘speaking of which’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Speaking of which
Jason: I got an email from John this morning. He wants us to come over for dinner tomorrow. Speaking of which, did you know he is moving to Florida?
Jen: I’m looking forward to the dinner but I didn’t know that John is moving to Florida.

본문에서 저와 Jason은 친구 John 으로부터 저녁 초대를 받은 모양입니다. Jason이 제게 “I got an email from John this morning. He wants us to come over for dinner tomorrow - speaking of which, did you know he is moving to Florida? “오늘 아침 John한테 이메일을 받았는데 내일 저녁 식사에 우리를 초대했어. 그런데 얘기가 나와서 말인데, John이 플로리다로 이사하는 거 아니?" 라고 묻습니다. 그러자 저는 “I’m looking forward to the dinner but I didn’t know that John is moving to Florida. “저녁 식사 기대된다. 그런데 John이 플로리다로 이사한다는 건 몰랐어.”라고 대답합니다.

Now keep today’s expression, ‘speaking of which’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Speaking of which
Jason: I got an email from John this morning. He wants us to come over for dinner tomorrow. Speaking of which, did you know he is moving to Florida?
Jen: I’m looking forward to the dinner but I didn’t know that John is moving to Florida.

Today’s expression is speaking of which. “Speaking of which” means, “while I was speaking about it, I thought of something else I wanted to say.” This phrase ‘speaking of which’ is used to refer to something that has just been said. It can actually be a thought that does not relate directly to the matter at hand. Speaking of which는 ‘얘기가 나왔으니 말인데’라는 뜻입니다. 그러니까 말이 나온 김에 무언 가를 더 얘기할 때 쓸 수 있는 표현입니다.

오늘 본문에서 Jason은 John의 저녁 식사 초대 얘기가 나온 김에, John이 플로리다로 이사하는 것도 아는 지 제게 묻습니다. 영어로 “Speaking of which, did you know he is moving to Florida?” 라고요.

그럼 예문을 통해 오늘 표현을 좀 더 자세히 알아보겠습니다. “I’m coming home later than you tonight. Speaking of which, don’t forget your house keys.”는 “나 오늘 집에 너보다 늦게 들어갈 거야. 말이 나와서 말인데, 꼭 열쇠 가지고 나가.” 라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example. “Speaking of which, when is Jessica back? ”라는 말은 “말이 나와서 하는 얘긴데, Jessica는 언제 돌아오니?” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. ‘Speaking of which’, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 마지막으로 오늘의 대화를 다시 한 번 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

Speaking of which
Jason: I got an email from John this morning. He wants us to come over for dinner tomorrow. Speaking of which, did you know he is moving to Florida?
Jen: I’m looking forward to the dinner but I didn’t know that John is moving to Florida.

Let’s review what we have learned today. “Speaking of which” means, “while I was speaking about it, I thought of something else I wanted to say.” SPEAKING OF WHICH. Now try using this expression on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
