그나저나. 그런데 말이야. BTW

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

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


자막

John:
Hi Lia! I am going to the party this weekend. Are you?

Lia:
Hi John! I am going to the party. Do you want to go with me? BTW, I already have a present if you’d like to go together on it.

John:
That would be great. I haven’t bought a gift yet.

Lia:
Perfect! I’ll pick you up at 2:00 on Saturday. See you then!

Lia:
As you heard from the conversation, BTW is a common abbreviation in English. The letters BTW stand for “by the way.” Instead of saying the words, we say or write just the letters to keep it short. BTW is used to insert a new idea into a conversation or to bring up something like a reminder. It’s used in spoken conversation, and it’s used especially in casual or informal writing like emails or text messages.
