[English with Yoo] Worked up


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


오늘의 표현은 worked up입니다.

Before we find out what ‘worked up’ means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘worked up’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

Worked up
Jen: Can you believe it? Taxes are increasing again!
Jason: Yeah, I know but what can you do. There is no need to get so worked up about it.

본문에서 저는 Jason에게 “Can you believe it? Taxes are increasing again! 믿겨지니? 세금이 또 오를거야! 윽!”라고 불평하자 Jason은 “Yeah, I know but what can you do. There is no need to get so worked up about it. 응, 알아. 하지만 그렇다고 뭘 할 수 있겠어. 흥분해 봐야 소용 없어”라고 했습니다.

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

Worked up
Jen: Can you believe it? Taxes are increasing again!
Jason: Yeah, I know but what can you do. There is no need to get so worked up about it.

Today’s expression is be worked up. If you are worked up it means that you are agitated or annoyed about something. Be worked up (over something)은 무엇 때문에 몹시 흥분하다, 또는 화가 나다 라는 뜻입니다.

In today’s conversation Jason notices that I’m getting worked up about the tax increase. 오늘 본문에서 제가 세금이 또 올라서 화가 난다고 하자, Jason은 그걸 두고 흥분해 봐야 소용없다고 했습니다. 영어로 “There is no need to get so worked up about it.”라고요. 이렇게 누군가가 화를 내거나 몹시 흥분할 때 쓰는 표현이 ‘worked up’입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “Roger tries not to get worked up so easily.” 라는 문장을 해석하면 “Roger는 쉽게 흥분하지 않으려고 노력한다.”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “Don’t get so worked up.”는 “너무 화내지 마세요.”로 해석할 수 있습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

Worked up
Jen: Can you believe it? Taxes are increasing again!
Jason: Yeah, I know but what can you do. There is no need to get so worked up about it.

Let’s review what we have learned today. To be worked up means to be agitated about something. WORKED UP / BE WORKED UP / GET WORKED UP. Keep this expression in mind and try using it on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
