Hello Dajia hao. This is John. We will learn how to say Excuse me in Chinese today.
- Excuse me
2. Excuse me, I am late.
3. Excuse me, I am sick.
4. Excuse me, I can’t go to the party
- Excuse me, I can’t attend the activity.
Excuse me is bùhǎoyìsi in Chinese. You know, BUHAO means not good, YISI means meaning in Chinese. It seems we say “It’s a not a good meaning” when we say Excuse me, but it means excuse me.
2. wǒ wǎn le
WO WAN LE means I am late. WO is I, WAN means late. You put le after late to show it happened.
3. wǒ bìnɡl le
Similar with WO WAN LE, WO BING LE means I am sick. Again, LE here is to show the situation happened.
4. wǒ bù nénɡ cānjiā jùhuì
It means I can’t go to the party. CANJIA means to attend, We say JUHUI for a party. You can also use pàiduì for party which is directly translated by sound of party.
- wǒ bùnénɡ cānjiā huódònɡ
I can’t attend the activity. CANJIA means to attend. HUODONG means activity.
