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


오늘의 표현은 first come, first served입니다.

What does first come, first served mean? Let’s find out, but first we will listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘first come, first served’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

First come, first served
Jason: Hey, the department store will be having a huge sale on mattresses tomorrow. It’s first come, first served.
Jen: Oh nice! I’d better get there early as it’s first come, first served.
Jason: Good idea.

본문에서 Jason은 제게 “Hey, the department store will be having a huge sale on mattresses tomorrow. It’s first come, first served. 야, 내일 백화점에서 침대 매트리스를 할인 판매 한대. 선착순 판매야.”라고 하자 저는 “Oh nice! I’d better get there early as it’s first come, first served. 와 잘됐다! 선착순이니까 내일 일찍 가야겠네.”라고 했습니다. Jason도 “Good idea. 좋은 생각이야.”라고 합니다.

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

First come, first served
Jason: Hey, the department store will be having a huge sale on mattresses tomorrow. It’s first come, first served.
Jen: Oh nice! I’d better get there early as it’s first come, first served.
Jason: Good idea.

Today’s expression is first come, first served. First come, first served means that the first people to arrive will be able to get the best choices. First come, first served는 ‘먼저 온 사람에게 우선권이 있다', '빨리 올수록 대접이 좋다'. 즉 선착순이란 말입니다.

In today’s conversation Jason reminds me that there is a huge sale on mattresses tomorrow and that it’s first come, first served. 오늘 본문에서 Jason은 내일 백화점에서 침대 매트리스를 할인 판매한다며, 선착순 판매라고 했습니다. 영어로 “Hey, the department store will be having a huge sale on mattresses tomorrow. It’s first come, first served.”라고요. 이렇게 먼저 오는 사람에게 우선권이 있는 선착순에 쓰는 표현이 ‘first come, first served’입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “The baseball tickets are first come, first served.” 라는 문장을 해석하면 “야구 경기 입장권은 선착순으로 판매합니다.”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “You can’t reserve a seat. It’s strictly first come, first served.”는 “자리 예약은 안됩니다. 철저히 먼저 온 사람 순입니다.”로 해석할 수 있습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

First come, first served
Jason: Hey, the department store will be having a huge sale on mattresses tomorrow. It’s first come, first served.
Jen: Oh nice! I’d better get there early as it’s first come, first served.
Jason: Good idea.

Let’s review what we have learned today. First come, first served means that the first people to arrive will be able to get the best choices. Keep this expression in mind and try using it on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
