가능하면 빨리 ASAP

미국에서는 줄임말을 쓰는 경우가 굉장히 많아요. 특히 긴 단어들 같은 경우에는요. 대표적으로 사용하는 것 중에 하나가 혹시 아실지도 모르겠지만 ASAP가 있답니다. 일반적인 대화에서도 많이 사용하니까 꼭 기억해 두셨다가 적재적소에 사용해 보세요!

ASAP 영어로 어떻게 사용하는지 미국 원어민 선생님과 대화를 통해서 미국 영어​​로 들어 보시죠!


자막

John:
Have you had time to finish the report?

Lia:
I’m sorry, I haven’t done that yet. I will do it ASAP.

John:
That would be great. When do you think you will have it done?

Lia:
I will do it today and have it ready in time for tomorrow’s meeting.

Lia:
As you heard from the conversation, ASAP is a common abbreviation in English. The letters ASAP stand for “as soon as possible.” Instead of saying all the words, we say or write just the letters or say A-SAP to keep it short. ASAP is used to indicate that something has top priority and needs to be done right away. You’ll hear it used in conversation, and it’s also used in casual business communication. However, in a more formal situation, you would not use the abbreviation but should say or write the whole phrase: as soon as possible.
