Jen: How is your son doing in school?
Jason: He’s not doing so well. He is always late to class and never turns in his homework. I need to chew him out if he continues to do that.

본문에서 제가 Jason에게 물었습니다. “How is your son doing in school? 아들이 학교에서 잘 지내니?” 라고요. Jason은”He’s not doing so well. He is always late to class and never turns in his homework. 잘 못 지내. 항상 지각에, 숙제도 제대로 내지 않아. I need to chew him out if he continues to do that. 계속 그러면 호되게 꾸짖어야겠어.”라고 합니다.

Now keep today’s phrase ‘chew someone out’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Today’s phrase is chew someone out. To chew someone out is to scold someone and tell them they did something wrong. Chew는 동사로 ‘물어 뜯다’ 또는 ‘씹다’라는 의미입니다. 그래서 chew someone out은 '누군가를 호되게 꾸짖다’, ‘야단치다’, 또는 ‘질책하다’ 라는 뜻입니다.

In today’s conversation Jason says he is going to chew his son out because he has been lazy and not doing well in school. 오늘 본문에서 Jason은 아들이 학교에 자주 지각하고 숙제를 안 해서 호되게 꾸짖어야겠다고 했습니다. 영어로 “I need to chew him out if he continues to do that.”라고요. 이렇게 누군가를 꾸짖거나 심하게 야단칠 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 바로 ‘chew him out’입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “My wife chewed me out yesterday because I forgot our anniversary.” 라는 문장을 해석하면 “결혼 기념일을 깜빡해서 아내에게 아주 혼났다.”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “My mom chewed me out for coming home so late.”는 “집에 늦게 들어왔다고 엄마에게 심하게 야단맞았다.” 로 해석할 수 있습니다. ‘Chew someone out’, 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.
