Day 6

28 April 2019

Most of people in Singapore take MRT or public bus to work. How do we say “i take MRT/bus to work”in mandarin ?

☘️The verb “take” in mandarin is “zuò(坐)” means to sit. When you take transportation and you are not the driver you should use “zuò(坐)”as the verb.

🌲MRT 🚇 in mandarin is “dì tiě(地铁)” means underground railway literally means “ground iron” .

🌲Bus 🚋in mandarin is “bā shì(巴士)” which is an overseas Chinese version while we have the other words which is also widely use in mainland China .

😎To work in mandarin is “shàng bān(上班)”.

🎈Now we have

wǒ zuò dìtiě/bāshì shàngbān 
我坐地铁/巴士上班。
I sit MRT/bus to work( literally )
I take MRT/bus to work.

Other transportations

zuò chū zū chē —坐出租车—take taxi

kāi chē —开车—to drive

qí zì xíng chē —骑自行车—to ride bicycle
