My mobile is out of power. How to ask for a charger in Chinese?

5 posts in this topic

It might drive us crazy that our mobiles are out of power, especially when we need to contact someone immediately. What you want most at the very moment is JUST a charger or power bank. If you don’t have neither of them, you might need ask for help. Followings will help you out, definitely.

我的手机没有电了。

Do you have any charger?

 

B:

Which one do you prefer? Iphone 6 or Android one?

Only rarely... or when I'm teaching... or examining.....

the thing is, a person will NEVER achieve native-level like fluency in a language, because the native speakers just nod their heads and say "it's ok, I know what you mean:... So, we end up having these mistakes that we keep making, because no-one ever bothers to correct us!

I was saying "washing washing" for months, before someone pointed out that it's not 'xi xi", but "xie xie". Everyone just smiled, nodded, and said "we know what you mean".

It's cool. I wouldn't agree less :)

    • I don't know!!!! Sheesh! They're in little side streets in small little 'cuns'... I just know where they are. Firstly, Aladin - go to DongHu (sp?) behind the dorms for Keji Xueyuan (opposite the uni, not next to it). There's only ONE road up from LiuHe Lu, so go up that to the end (of the real road, not up the little non-road thing - this will make sense when you see it!) Turn right at the top corner (naturally), and go to the first 'intersection' or parting of the houses that looks like it might go somewhere... and you should see a big vertical sign on a wall that says "Uzbegistani". (there are LOTS of foreign students around the area, so you can just ask).   Sana'a - go to the XiaoHeShan bus terminal. Walk up that side road (from LiuHe lu, again), til you get to the FIRST cross street going LEFT. Go up that side 'street', and you'll see it (easily) on the right after you cross the 'bridge' (there's a small creek under it). At the bridge (which is about 100m from that intersection where you turned left), look to 2 o'clock and you'll see a restaurant with glass doors - that's it! Again, LOTS of foreign students around, so you can ask if you get lost.
    • Hi all We are an Indian family with daughter of 3 yrs old, live in Hangzhou. We live near to Fengqi Road Subway. I would like to know which place is  have a international kindergarten for my child. I would prefer the area near Fenggi Road Subway, Xihu Qu or close to Hangzhou No 14 High School. Please help me to get more information on this . Awaiting for your feed backs.
    • Thanks.  I'll try that.  Very helpful!!!
    • Also mind that there might be limits on withdrawing money back from Alipay to your bank account, as in, first X RMB can be withdrawn for free and then you must pay a fee, so treat it rather like a current expenses account or a way to pay for things (when money is transferred from your bank account to Alipay during the transaction).
    • Go to mobile.alipay.com on your phone and you will be able to download and install an .apk file (not sure about the app language though). Totally. To register your UnionPay card you’ll need to enter your name, mobile number and passport number you used when you opened your bank account. Make sure you enter everything precisely as is stated in bank documents, e.g. it’s probably SURNAMEFIRSTNAME and also make sure ID type is Passport, not national ID card.
