영어를 듣고 말하는데 꼭 알아야 할 미국영어 슬랭 정리했습니다~

To have a crush

To have a crush (on somebody)는 어떤 사람에게 반하다, 매혹당하다라는 뜻입니다.
친구 이상의 감정을 느낀다는 의미라고 할 수 있습니다.

예문
“I have the biggest crush on Simon. He’s so cute!”
“Isn’t he dating Jenny Parkes?”
“No, not anymore, apparently they broke up a few weeks ago!”
“Cool!”

‘have a crush’ 대신 ‘crushing on’이라고 쓸 수도 있습니다.
“Oooh, you’re so crushing on Michael right now!”
“I am not! We’re just friends!”
“Liar! I can tell you like him.”
“Is it that obvious?”

To dump somebody

To dump somebody 는 어떤 사람을 마음 아프게 했다는 뜻입니다.
연인을 ‘dump’했다면 결별을 선언했다는 의미가 되겠죠.

예문
“What’s wrong with Amy? She’s been walking around the campus all day looking sad and like she’s going to start crying anymore.”
“Didn’t you hear? Alex dumped her last night! Just don’t mention his name at all!”
“Wow, I’m surprised. They always looked so happy together!”

“Landon looks so mad! What happened?”
“He and Samantha broke up.”
“Oh no, who dumped who?”
“I’m not sure, but I have a feeling it was Sam!”

Ex

Ex는 헤어진 여자친구나 남자친구를 말할 때 쓰는 표현입니다.
전 직장 상사를 ‘ex-boss’라고 할 수도 있습니다.

예문
“Who was that guy you were talking to before?”
“Oh Cam? He’s my ex!”
“And you’re still friends?”
“Kind of, we only broke up because he moved to LA.”

“My ex always sends me messages on Facebook. I wish she’d stop, it’s really annoying!”
“Tell her, or just delete as your friend!”

Geek

Geek 은 어떤 맥락에서 쓰느냐에 따라 좋은 말일 수도 있고 그렇지 않을 수도 있습니다.
어떤 사람을 ‘geek’이라고 부르면 샌님처럼 외골수로 공부나 컴퓨터만 잘하지 사교적이지 못하다는 의미일 수도 있고, 친근하고 긍정적으로 지칭하면 재미있다는 뜻도 되기 때문입니다.

예문
“What do think of the new girl Amanda?”
“Not much, she seems like a geek. She spends all her time in the library!”
“Maybe because she feels lonely. She’s new!”

“Let’s go Ted’s house party tonight! Everyone’s going to be there!”
“I wish I could, but I have to study for my finals!”
“Ah, man, you’re such a geek!”
“I know. But if I don’t pass Coach Jones is going to kick me off the team!”

To be hooked

To be hooked 는 어떤 일에 빠지다. 중독되다라는 뜻입니다.

예문
“What did you think about the new sitcom with James Franco?”
“Loved it. I’m hooked already!”

“I miss George!”
“George’s your ex. You’re hooked on him and it’s not healthy. It’s time to move on!”
