오늘 영어표현은 pressed for time입니다. When you are pressed for time, it means that you don’t have much time and you are in a hurry. Basically, it means that you are working against a very tight schedule. Pressed for time는 시간에 쫓기는 상황을 표현할 때 사용하는데요. 급한 일 때문에 서둘러야 할 때 쓸 수 있습니다. Press는 누르다, 압박하다라는 뜻이죠. 그래서 pressed for time 하면 시간에 쫓기다 라는 의미가 되는 것입니다. 예를 들어 “I was pressed for time and couldn’t even have dinner.” 하면 “시간에 쫓겨서 저녁도 못 먹었어.” 라는 뜻이 되는 것이죠.
