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


오늘의 표현은 I’m down입니다.

Before we find out what today’s expression means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. Listen carefully. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘I’m down’이 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

I’m down
Jen:
Hey, do you want to go see a movie tonight?
Jason: Sure. I’m down with that. By the way, should I ask Sandy if she wants to come too?
Jen: I have already asked her and she said she is down.
Jason: Okay, cool.

본문에서 제가 Jason에게 “Hey, do you want to go see a movie tonight? 오늘 저녁에 나랑 영화 볼래?”라고 묻자 Jason은 “Sure. I’m down with that. By the way, should I ask Sandy to come too? 응, 좋아! 그럼, Sandy도 갈건 지 물어볼까?”라고 했습니다. 그래서 저는 “I have already asked her and she said she is down. 내가 벌써 물어봤는데 온다고 했어.”라고 알려줬습니다.

Now keep today’s expression ‘I’m down’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

I’m down
Jen:
Hey, do you want to go see a movie tonight?
Jason: Sure. I’m down with that. By the way, should I ask Sandy if she wants to come too?

Jason: Okay, cool.

Today’s expression is I’m down. This is a very common and simple expression that is used to say that you are totally fine with something and that you are all for something. You can also use this phrase to express that you are in the mood to do something. I’m down이라는 표현은 상대방의 질문이나 제안에 대한 답으로 쓰는데요, 상대방의 의견에 동의할 때 사용합니다. I'm down with that을 줄인 것이죠. ‘okay’라는 대답 대신에 쓸 수 있는 표현으로 이해하시면 쉽습니다.

In our example today, Jason tells me that he is down to watch a movie tonight. 오늘 본문에서 제가 Jason에게 오늘 영화 보러 갈 거냐고 묻자, Jason은 좋다고 합니다. 영어로 “Sure. I’m down with that.”라고요. 이렇게 누가 물어봤을 때 ‘yes’ 나 ‘okay’ 대신, ‘좋아!’, ‘응, 그래!’라고 대답할 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 바로 ‘I’m down’입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “I asked Wendy if she wants to go camping and she said she’s down.”라는 문장을 해석하면 “내가 Wendy한테 캠핑하러 갈 거냐고 물어봤는데 그런다고 했어.” 라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “I’m down for karaoke tonight.”는 “좋아! 노래방가자!” 로 해석할 수 있습니다. ‘I’m down’, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

I’m down
Jen:

Jason: Sure. I’m down with that. By the way, should I ask Sandy if she wants to come too?
Jen: I have already asked her and she said she is down.
Jason: Okay, cool.

Let’s review! If you are down to do something, you are in the mood and you are totally okay with doing something. I’M DOWN. I’m down이라는 표현을 한번 사용해보도록 해보세요. Now try using this expression on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
