Play it by ear (From VOA's "English with Yoo)
오늘의 영어 표현은: Play it by ear 입니다.

제가 Kaitlin이 아주 친절하고 착한것 같다며 어느 주에서 왔냐고 물었더니 미시간에서 왔다고 했습니다. Kaitlin은 DC 에 너무 급하게 오느라 집을 못구해서 현재 Abbey집에 머무르고 있다고 하는데요, She wants the contract until the end of March, 3월 말까지 Abbey 집에 살다가then we can play it by ear 3월 이후에는 상황을 봐서 결정하겠다고 하더라구요.

오늘의 영어 표현, Play it by ear 인데요, Play it by ear to deal with a situation as it develops and sometimes without a plan.

Play it by ear (사전 계획을 세우기보다) 그때그때 사정을 봐 가면서 하다, 임기응변으로 하다 는 뜻이 있습니다.
