Presenter
여러분 안녕하세요. English Together 에 오신 것을 환영합니다. 저희 프로그램에서는 한 가지 주제에 대해서 논의하고 그 주제와 관련된 영어 표현을 가르쳐 드리고 있습니다. 저는 김기환 입니다. 오늘 저희와 함께 하실 분들을 모셔보겠습니다. 안녕하세요?

Sam

Hi, I’m Sam.

Phil
And I’m Phil. Welcome!

Presenter
네 안녕하세요
오늘은 런던에 사는 사람들과 ‘외로움’에 대해서 얘기나눠보려고 하는데요, 우선 여기에서 질문을 하나 드려볼게요: 다음 도시들 중에 어느 도시가 가장 클까요?
a. 나이지리아의 라고스
b. 영국의 런던
c. 인도의 델리

Phil

Well, I live in London, and it’s definitely big – but I haven’t been to Delhi, or Lagos… and I’d love to, they look like interesting places. But, I don’t know. Uhm, what do you think, Sam?

Sam

Well, I’ve been to Delhi and I think its great, but I don’t know which is bigger.

Presenter

자 두분 다 곧 알게될테니 걱정하지마세요. 그럼 방금 말씀드렸던 이런 큰 도시들에 사는 것은 과연 어떤지, 그리고 이런 도시에 사는 사람들은 어떤 문제를 겪는지, 이를 다룬 BBC뉴스입니다. 한 번 들어 보세요.

News insert

More than a quarter of Londoners say they feel lonely often or all of the time, acording to a survey comisioned by BBC London.
Research company Populus interviewed 1,000 adults in London for the poll. And while the majority said they had someone in London who could help them in a crisis, a quarter said they felt they did not know their neighbours and 28% said there was little or no sense of community where they live.

Presenter
아 그럼 이 내용은 런던과 같은 대도시에 사는게 외로울 수 있다는 것이네요. 어떠세요? 이 내용에 동의 하시나요?

Sam
I live in London, and that just means I’m always busy! I think I’d prefer to live somewhere, where people have time for each other.

Phil
But living in a big city means you meet so many people, it’s so vibrant.

Presenter
Vibrant 는 활기차단 뜻이에요. So you like the fact that lots of things are happening?

Phil
Yeah, whatever you like doing, you can do it here. The place is just full of opportunities.

Presenter

I know exactly what you mean – ‘opportunities’ 는 기회라는 말인데요. Phil, do you manage to take advantage of the opportunities?

Phil

Yeah, sort of, I’ve done lots of things. And I’ve met lots of people.

Presenter
내 대도시 애는 다양한 기회들이 많은 것 같아요. So, Sam you must agree with that, right.

Sam

Uhm, let’s look at this a different way… Phil, how often exactly do you do those things? And these new people… do you see any of them a second time?

Phil
Oh, all the time… and I meet up with loads of people.

Sam
No, but really… how often…?

Phil
Let me see… erm… well… You know… I go to some kind of event at least every couple of months, and there’s a couple off people I’ve met more than once.

Presenter
That’s not really ‘all the time… is it?

Sam
Well, you see – that’s the thing, cities are vibrant and full of opportunities… but most people don’t take those opportunities – and it’s hard to get to know people well when the population is transient.

Phil

Transient?

Presenter

‘Transient’ 는 일시적인 것들을 이야기합니다.

Phil

So, it means people are always moving in or out of a city?

Sam

Or moving around the city – groups of friends can end up been very dispersed.

Presenter
Yes, ‘dispersed’ 는 무언가가 분산됐다라는 의미입니다.

Sam
Yes, and that’s why people get lonely in cities like London, Lagos or Delhi. Peoples friends are dispersed over a wide area.

Presenter
아 외로움에 대한 얘기가 나오니 아까드렸던 오늘의 질문이 생각나네요. 런던, 라고스 그리고 델리 중 어떤 도시가 제일 클까요 였죠. UN에 따르면 정답은… 네, 델리 입니다. 그 다음이 Lagos 이고 이 세 도시중에 런던은 제일 작았네요.

Phil
So, Delhi’s bigger than London? Imagine all the opportunities I could have there.

Sam

Well, maybe we can see if we can get you a transfer, Phil.

Presenter

Phil is very excited about all the opportunities he could have.
청취자 여러분은 어떠신가요? 여러분이 사는 곳에도 opportunities 다양한 기회가 많이 있나요? 아니면 사람들이 Transient 일시적으로 머무르거나 dispersed 분산되어 있나요.
자 오늘의 에피소드를 마치기 전에, 조금 전 배웠던 도시와 관련된 단어들을 다시 한 번 짚어볼게요. ‘Vibrant’ 활기찬, ‘opportunities’ 기회들, ‘transient’ 일시적인, 그리고 ‘dispersed’ 분산되다 이런 표현들이 있었습니다. 청취자 여러분 감사합니다. 다음주에 더 다양한 표현들과 함께 또 만날게요! Bye!
