#1

2005년 처음 미국에 갔다. 짧은 영어로 스타벅스에서 주문을 했다. 내 영어가 통했다. 이런 게 영어 공부의 재미다.

It’s hart to take courage

In a world full of people

“True Colors”, Trolls OST

 

아빠, People 사람들 맞아요?”

 

[Video 1. ‘True Colors’ 출처: DreamWorks TV YouTube Channel]

 

Po: Work hard, Panda. And maybe, someday… you will have ears like mine.

“Kung Fu Panda”

 

아빠, Sunday 일요일이죠?”

 

조금씩 틀리긴 하지만 영화와 음악을 통해 아들도 조금씩 영어 공부의 재미를 느끼고 있을 것 같다. 조금 더 크게는 공부의 재미를.

Obstruct justice

Did Mr. Trump obstruct justice?

‘Did Mr. Trump Obstruct Justice?’, The Editorial Board, The New York Times, May 16th, 2017

 

Obstruction of justice

But as distasteful as the president’s statements may be, they do not constitute an obstruction of justice.

Spell

She has come to break the spell.

The spell is broken.

 

She transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there.

Cockpit (조종석)

I just nodded and smiled at a few of them as I made my way back into cockpit with my sandwich.

Sex-selection abortion

leave a comment »

아기를 낳을 때마다 성별이 궁금했다. 딸일까, 아들일까? 아들일까, 딸일까? 내가 선택할 수 있는 일이 아니었다. 그저 받아들일 뿐. 시대가 변해 부모가 기대하던 성별과 다르다 할지라도 받아들이지 않을 수 없게 되었다.

성별이 마음에 들지 않아 낙태를 하는 일. 영어로는 ‘Sex-selection abortion’ – 또는 ‘Sex-selective abortion’ – 이다. 어느 사회든 생명은 존중되어야 한다.

 

The law, signed by Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Wednesday, banning “sex-selection abortion” requires doctors to ask a woman seeking an abortion if  she knows the gender of the fetus she is carrying, and if she does, to tell her it is illegal to choose an abortion based on that information.
