Today’s phrase is ‘to nail something’. To nail something means to make or do something perfectly or in an impressive way. Nail은 못, 손톱이라는 뜻이죠. 살다 보면 간혹 못질해야 하는 적이 있는데요. 못을 제대로 박는 게 쉽지 많은 않습니다. 잘못하면 비뚤어지기도 하고 못이 부러지는 경우도 있습니다. 휘기도 하고요. 그런데 못질이 어떤 때는 마음 내키는 대로 잘 되기도 하지요. 그럴 때는 기분이 아주 좋습니다. 여기서 나온 표현이 to nail something입니다. 어떤 것을 ‘완벽하게 해내다, 성공하다, 시험에 합격하다’라는 뜻이죠. You did it!이나 You got it!이라는 표현과도 바꿔 쓸 수 있습니다. 자, 예문을 통해서 다시 한 번 익혀볼까요? “Good luck on your first public speech. I hope you nail it!” 하면 “첫 연설이지만 잘 할 수 있도록 행운을 빈다! 분명히 잘 해낼 것라고 기대해!” 라는 뜻이 되는 것이죠. Now let’s listen to this conversation for the last time.
