oday’s expression is call something off. If you call something off, you decide that a planned event will not happen. It simply means to cancel something. Call something off는 무언가를 '취소하다' '철수시키다'는 뜻입니다.

In today’s conversation Alice tells me that Justin’s baseball coach had to call of the game because of bad weather. 오늘 본문에서 Alice는 Justin의 야구코치가 비 때문에 경기를 취소했다고 말합니다. 영어로 “Yes, but the coach called it off because of the rain.”라고요. 이렇게 계획됐던 행사를 취소하거나 중단할 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 바로 ‘call something off’입니다.

그럼 예문을 통해 오늘의 표현을 더 배워보겠습니다. “Sadly, Tom and Jessica called off the wedding.”라는 문장을 해석하면 “안타깝게도, Tom과 Jessica가 결혼을 취소했다.” 라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “Mr.Mallers had to call off the meeting today because his son was sick.”은 “Mallers 씨는 아들이 아파서 회의를 취소 해야 했다.”로 해석할 수 있습니다. ‘Call something off’, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다.
