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

오늘의 표현은 flake out 입니다.

Today we are going to learn an interesting expression. Before we find out what it means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. Listen carefully. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘flake out’이 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Flake out
Jen: You flaked out on me yesterday. We were supposed to have lunch together!
Jason: I’m so sorry for flaking out on you. I’ll make sure that I get lunch for us tomorrow.

본문에서 저와 Jason은 어제 점심 약속이 있었는데, Jason이 약속을 못 지켰습니다. 제가 “You flaked out on me yesterday. We were supposed to have lunch together!”라고 하자 Jason은 “I’m so sorry for flaking out on you. 약속을 어겨서 정말 미안해. I’ll make sure that I get lunch for us tomorrow. 내가 내일 점심 살게.”라고 사과합니다.
Now keep today’s phrase ‘flake out’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Flake out
Jen: You flaked out on me yesterday. We were supposed to have lunch together!
Jason: I’m so sorry for flaking out on you. I’ll make sure that I get lunch for us tomorrow.

Today’s phrase is flake out. If you flake out you fail to attend a prearranged meeting or event or you fail to go through with something. It simply means to cancel at the last minute. Flake out은 ‘약속을 어기다’, 무언가 정해진 일을 ‘지키지 못하다’ 라는 뜻입니다. 좀 다른 뜻으로 너무 지쳐서 곯아 떨어졌다는 의미로 쓰이기도 합니다.

In today’s example, Jason apologizes and tells me he will buy lunch for us since he flaked out on lunch appointment. 본문에서 Jason은 “점심 약속을 지키지 못해서 미안해. 내일 점심은 내가 꼭 살게.’라고 말합니다. “I’m so sorry for flaking out on you. I’ll make sure that I get lunch for us tomorrow.”라고요. 이렇게 예정된 계획을 지키지 못했거나, 약속을 어겼을 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 ‘flake out” 입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “Don’t say you are coming to the event if you are going to flake out.”은 “약속을 지키지 못 할거라면, 행사에 온다고 하지 마세요!” 라고 해석할 수 있습니다. Here is another example sentence. “Jim, don’t flake out on me now.” 문장을 해석하면 “Jim, 나와의 약속을 어기지마.” 라는 뜻입니다. Now that you know what today’s phrase ‘flake out’ means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

Flake out
Jen: You flaked out on me yesterday. We were supposed to have lunch together!
Jason: I’m so sorry for flaking out on you. I’ll make sure that I get lunch for us tomorrow.

Let’s review what we have learned today. If you flake out you fail to attend a prearranged meeting or event or you fail to go through with something. ‘FLAKE OUT’라는 표현을 한번 사용해보도록 해보세요. Now try using this expression on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
