Dà jiā hǎo! When you visit a new country, sometimes unexpected emergencies occur. How do you deal with emergencies in an unknown environment? Obviously it helps when you know a little of the local language! So let me teach you some survival mandarin! Come with me and let's see how we use it!

 

jiù mìng

救命

help

jǐng chá

警察

police

xiǎo tōu

小偷

thief

kuài

quick

yāo yāo líng

110

110 calling for police

yāo yāo jiǔ

119

119 in case of fire

yāo èr líng

120

120 calling for ambulance

jiù hù chē

救护车

ambulance

sāo rǎo

骚扰

harass

For example, when you discover that your purse was stole by someone, you can say “xiǎo tōu” directly, then call 110 for help. Here come two important sentences:

Kuài dǎ yāo yāo líng.

Call 110 now.

快打110

Yǒu rén sāo rǎo wǒ.

Someone is harassing me.

有人骚扰我。

If you need an ambulance, what can you say:

Wǒ xū yào yī liàng jiù hù chē.

I need an ambulance.

 

我需要一辆救护车。

 

If you really need other people's help, for example, your feet were hurt by something and you can not move, you can say “jiù mìng”.

 

Ok, hope you never have to use these words in China but if that moment comes, you'll be ready! let’s continue to learn Mandarin everyday! Ràng wǒ men měi tiān xué xí pǔ tōng huà! See you next time. Xià cì jiàn!

 

It's easy as ABC!
