Has anyone told you that you are down-to-earth? What does that mean, to be down-to-earth? Let’s find out, but first we’ll listen to a conversation that Jason and Mike had. Listen carefully. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘Down-to-earth’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Down-to-earth
Jason: I’m transferring to a new marketing department next week.
Mike: Oh, which one?
Jason: The one Ted is leading. I heard that he is a great supervisor and a down-to-earth kind of guy.
Mike: Yes, I’ve worked with him before and he is down-to-earth! You’ll learn a lot from him.
Jason: I’m looking forward to it.

Jason이 Mike에게 “I’m transferring to a new marketing department next week. 다음 주에 마케팅부로 옮기게 됐어요.”라고 말하자, Mike가 “Oh, which one? 어디라고요?”라고 묻습니다. Jason이 “The one Ted is leading. I heard that he is a great supervisor and a down-to-earth kind of guy. 테드가 부서장으로 있는 마케팅부로요. 테드는 훌륭한 관리자고요, 함께 일하기 편한 분이라고 하더라고요.”라고 말하자, Mike가 “Yes, I’ve worked with him before and he is down-to-earth. 맞아요 저도 테드 밑에서 일한 적이 있는데, 직원들을 편하게 대해주셨어요. By the way, You’ll learn a lot.. 하여튼 배울게 많을 겁니다.”라고 말하고 있습니다. 그러자 Jason이 “I’m looking forward to it 정말 기대되네요.”라고 하네요.

오늘의 영어표현은 Down-to-earth 입니다.

When someone is ‘down-to-earth’ it means that they are practical and reasonable. It can also mean that they are fun to be around with. Down-to-earth는 현실적인, 합리적인, 진실한 이라는 뜻이고요 a down-to-earth kind of person 하면 함께 있기 좋은 사람, 남들을 즐겁게 해주는 사람이라는 의미입니다. 예문을 두 개 들어볼게요. “I enjoy spending time with you because you are such a down-to-earth kind of person. 이 말은 너와 함께 있으면 참 좋아, 나를 즐겁게 해주니까 말이야”라는 의미입니다. 또한, 학교에서 회의를 통해 새로 나온 구상이 지나치게 이상적일 때, “Our plans for the class are anything but down-to-earth 계획이 현실적이지 못해”라고 말할 수 있습니다.

오늘의 표현, ‘down-to-earth’ 꼭 기억하시고요. Now we’ll listen to this conversation for the last time.
