안녕하세요 English with Yoo! 의 Jennifer Yoo입니다. English with Yoo! 는 일상생활에서 자주 쓰이는 다양한 표현들을 익히는 시간입니다.

I’ll give you a daily introduction to some meaningful and useful everyday English words and phrases! So let’s get started today!

오늘의 영어 표현은: Play a part (in something)

My friends and I decided to attend a candidate’s night sponsored by the Korean Coalition for Political Participation. It was pretty interesting.
한인정치참여연합에서는 올해 미국 선거에 대비해 한인 유권자들의 선거참여를 적극적으로 권하고, 미 정치 후보자들에게 한인들의 이슈를 알리기 위해, 대통령 과 연방 상하원 후보 14 명을 초대해 토론회를 했습니다.
후보들의 정책과 자질을 검증하고 한인사회 정치력을 키우는 좋은 기회였습니다.
Also, there was a surprise visit from Mitt Romney’s two sons, Ben and Josh Romney. 미트 롬니 공화당 후보의 두 아들인 밴(Ben)과 조시(Josh)는 깜짝 방문을 했습니다. Then let’s listen to what Ben Romney had to say about the Korean-American community playing an important part in this election year.
오늘의 영어 표현은play a part (in something) 입니다? Listen carefully!

Play a part (in something)
Ben Romney: To turn this economy around and to get Americans back to work. This is a vitally important election. The Korean-America population here and elsewhere around this country is really going to play a part in making sure that we elect the right guy. So I appreciate your support. I appreciate you coming out here today and I’ll turn it over to my brother Josh here.
밴 롬니 는 ‘한인 주민들의 투표가 제대로 된 사람을 뽑는데 얼마나 중요한지’ 말하더라고요. The Korean-America population here and elsewhere around this country is really going to play a part in making sure that we elect the right guy라고했죠?

오늘의 영어 표현은: play a part (in something)이죠?
play a part (in something) 하면 ‘ (~)에 관여하다 / 역할을 하다 / 일조하다’ 라는 뜻입니다.
play a part (in something) means to be involved in something and to participate in something in a specific way.
그럼 대화를 다시 들어보겠습니다. Let’s listen to the conversation again.

Now it’s your turn: I’ll say it in Korean and you try saying it in English!

맞습니다! A father plays an important part/role in his child’s life.

오늘의 영어표현 ‘play a part (in something) (~)에 관여하다 / 역할을 하다 / 일조하다 play a part (in something)

Here is a food for thought. Think about this. Do you play a part in something, maybe in your school or at home?
Think about it and let me know!
