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

Recommended Posts

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.

你有充电器吗?

nǐ yǒu chōng diàn qì ma?

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".

    • I have an English learning workshop with my partner. We teach kids and try to help them to experience various ways of learning a foreign language. Among all the ways, communicating to real English speakers as much as someone can is the best way to get improvement. So we have a practical idea like asking for foreign friends to join in our project. The learning project might be like this: 1.we will organize activities once or twice a month. (Going to visit museums and places of interest, experiencing authentic Chinese culture are gladly to be considered)  2.we will set up some language learning goals for the real scene.  3. Invite foreign friends to communicate with kids in English to have the “real chat” and finish the language goals concurrently. So according to above idea, we hope you are interested in Chinese culture and enjoy staying with children, and if you have teaching experiences, that will be so nice!!!  And the most important thing is that you will stay in Hangzhou for a long and stable time. If you have interest in this, please send me the private message!!

    • Hello everyone!  After the fun process of working with the visa offices I think I'm finally close to being finished and will be moving over to China.  I will be working with a company that is introducing American Football to the Youth.  I will first be staying in Shanghia for few weeks and then eventually moving to HZ.  My office will be based in the Xihu district.  I would like to join the WeChat group and also like to know any information about the area that y'all are willing to share.  Thank you in advance and I look forward to this adventure.
