[English with Yoo] I beg your pardon


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

오늘의 표현은 I beg your pardon 입니다.

Today, we are going to learn a common American expression. “I beg your pardon.” 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘I beg your pardon’이 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

I beg your pardon
Jen: Why are you taking my cell phone?
Jason: Oh! I’m sorry. I beg your pardon. I thought it was mine.
Jen: I beg you pardon?
Jason: I just said I thought it was mine. Sorry about that. It was an accident.
Jen: Oh, okay.

In today’s conversation there are two different ways the phrase “I beg your pardon” are used. First, Jason politely apologizes for accidently taking my cell phone. “Oh! I’m sorry. I beg your pardon. I thought it was mine.” Second, I apologize to Jason by saying, “I beg your pardon.” for not catching what he has said. 본문에서 제가 Jason에게 “왜 내 핸드폰을 가져가니? Why are you taking my cell phone?”라고 하자 Jason은 “Oh! I’m sorry. I beg your pardon. I thought it was mine. 오! 미안해. 내 건 줄 알았어.”라고 사과했습니다. 제가 Jason의 대답을 잘 못 들어서, 다시 말해달라고 했습니다. “I beg you pardon? 뭐라고?” 라고요. 그러자Jason이 다시 “I just said I thought it was mine. Sorry about that. It was an accident. 내 건 줄 알아서 그랬다고. 미안해. 모르고 그랬어.”라고 말했습니다.

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

Today’s expression is I beg your pardon. ‘pardon’은 ‘용서’, ‘beg’은 ‘빌다’는 뜻이니까, 직역하면 “당신의 용서를 구합니다”라는 뜻이 되죠. You can use this phrase when you express polite apology. It’s another way of asking someone to repeat something again because you didn’t hear it the first time. “I beg your pardon"은 이렇게 자신의 말이나 행동에 대해 사과할 때 쓰는 표현입니다. 또 상대방의 말을 잘 못 알아들어서 다시 한 번 말해 달라고 할 때도 쓸 수 있습니다. "I beg your pardon?"처럼 말이죠. 이럴 땐 '미안하지만 잘 못 들었는데 뭐라고요? 라는 뜻입니다. 비슷한 표현인 'Excuse me'도 두 가지 경우에 다 쓸 수 있습니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “I beg your pardon but can you say that again?” 라는 문장을 해석하면 “미안하지만 잘 못 들었는데 다시 말해줄 수 있나요?”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “I beg your pardon. I didn’t mean to interrupt.”는 “미안해. 방해하려는 건 아니었어.” 로 해석할 수 있습니다. ‘I beg your pardon’, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다.
