Share |

Abstract : Need some Vitamin C or perhaps some Vitamin B – that’s “B” for Benny! Sooner or later the dreaded germs are going to win and our best defense and ammunition is to be able to find a Pharmacy and communicate our illness!

Hi, dàjiā hǎo, wǒ shì Benny, jīntiān nǐmen hǎo ma? (How are you guys today? I am Benny , how are you guys?) Zhèlǐ shì Bennysland(Here is Bennysland). No matter how well we take care of ourselves, a cold will eventually catch up to us. When you are sick and you are in China, the most important thing is to be able to communicate exactly what is wrong with you. Don't worry, Benny is here! Let me tell you some basic words today, at least you’ll be able to express your pain or ask people where you can buy medicine.

Did you get it? I think with these words you won’t need to do use charades in order to explain your aches and pains! In the future we’ll learn more words in this area. First let's memorize these 4 sentences. Don’t forget your Vitamin C and Vitamin B – That’s me! Xièxie, zàijiàn.

 

It's easy as ABC!
