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: Suck up (to somebody)

I still remember my first day of kindergarten class. Most of my classmates and I brought shiny red apples to suck up to the teacher on the first day. Because they say that an apple is somewhat like a traditional present for teachers in the United States.

제가 유치원 첫 날 수업때 선생님께 반짝반짝 빛나는 빨간 사과를 드린 기억이 아직도 생생하네요. 미국에서는 첫 수업때 이렇게 선생님께 사과를 드리는데요 이유는 선생님눈에 들어서 사랑을 듬뿍받고 싶어서랍니다.

As a little kid, I guess everyone wants to be loved by a teacher and become a teacher’s pet.

I asked my friend, Vivian, who is an elementary teacher what a teacher’s pet is and if she was ever a teacher’s pet. Let’s hear what she had to say! 그럼 제가 비비안과 함께 대화것을 한번 들어보실까요?

Jen: Maybe they bring an apple on the first day of class, were you a teacher’s pet?

제가 비비안에게 ‘학생때 학기 첫날마다 선생님께 사과 그러니까Apple를 갔다줬냐고 또 선생님 사랑을 많이 받는 학생이었느냐고’ 물어 보니까 비비안은 ‘No I wasn’t. I was pretty much a bad kid! 나는 대단한 말성꾸러기였어요’ 라고 하더라고요.
