Today, we are going to learn what it means to bear in mind. Let’s start by listening to today’s conversation. Listen carefully. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘bear in mind’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Bear in mind
Jason: I think I should ask Lisa to babysit my daughter for a few days.
Jen: Well, bear in mind that Lisa has never done that before. You should get an experienced babysitter.
Jason: Thanks. I’ll keep that in mind when I make a decision.

본문에서 Jason이 아내와 며칠 동안 집을 비울 모양입니다. Jason은 며칠간 Lisa에게 딸을 보도록 부탁할 생각이라고, 제게 말했는데요. 제가 “Well, bear in mind that Lisa has never done that before. You should get an experienced babysitter. Lisa는 아이를 본 적이 없다는 점을 명심해. 차라리 경험 있는 사람을 구해봐.”라고 조언했습니다. Jason도 “Thanks. I’ll keep that in mind when I make a decision soon. 고마워. 곧 정해야 하는데, 명심할게.”라고 대답합니다.

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

Jen: Well, bear in mind that Lisa has never done that before. You should get an experienced babysitter.
Jason: Thanks. I’ll keep that in mind when I make a decision.

Today’s expression is bear in mind. Bear in mind means to remember something when you are making decisions or thinking about a matter. 우리가 일상에서 꼭 기억하거나, 유념해야 하는 것들이 있죠. 이렇게 중요한 사실이나 정보 등을 잘 기억하라고 할 때 쓸 수 있는 영어 표현이 'bear in mind’입니다. 직역하면 '마음에 품다', 즉 명심하라는 뜻입니다.

In today’s example, I tell Jason to bear in mind that Lisa is not an experienced babysitter. 본문에서 제가 Jason한테 Lisa는 아이를 본 적이 없다는 사실을 명심하라고 했습니다. 영어로 “Well, bear in mind that Lisa has never done that before. You should get an experienced babysitter.”라고요. 이렇게 무엇을 알고 있어야 할 때, 또는 명심해야 할 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 ‘bear in mind’ 입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “Bear in mind that I won’t be home tomorrow so take your house keys with you.”는 “난 내일 집에 없을 거니까, 열쇠 챙기는 걸 꼭 기억해.”로 해석할 수 있습니다. Here is another example sentence. “Please bear in mind that we need to work as a team to get this done.”라는 문장을 해석하면 “우리가 함께 협력해야 이 일을 끝낼 수 있다는 걸 명심하세요.” 라는 뜻입니다. ‘Bear in mind’, 이 표현 잘 익혀두시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
