Please be careful 請注意安全

Dear friends,

Here is the lesson today, we are going to learn few Chinese words about 注意(pay attention) and 安全(safety),etc. Please watch the instruction video as follow:


The first phrase contains two parts:

Typhoon is approaching,

颱風來了

颱風(typhoon) + 來(come) + 了(ending tag)

Please be careful.
請注意安全

請(please) + 注意(pay attention) + 安全(safety)

note, the Chinese character 了(le) is an ending tag of a sentence in modern Chinese, expressing "about to" or "already" for a verb.

and the phrase:

Please be careful.
請注意安全

Qǐng zhù-yì ān-quán

請(please) + 注意(pay attention) + 安全(safety)

You can use part of it, such as:

Attention, Please.
請注意
Qǐng zhù-yì

請(please) + 注意(pay attention)

or the whole phrase as in our lesson:

Please be careful.
請注意安全

Qǐng zhù-yì ān-quán

請(please) + 注意(pay attention) + 安全(safety)

here the 2-character words 注意(pay attention) and 安全(safety) are both modern Chinese words which also be used in Japanese, actually lots of modern Chinese words were translated back from Japanese kanji in 1900s.

pay attention
注意
zhù-yì

safety
安全
ān-quán


The second phrase is similar with the first phrase:

When an earthquake occurs,
地震來了

地震(earthquake) + 來(come) + 了(ending tag)

Please be careful.
請注意安全

請(please) + 注意(pay attention) + 安全(safety)

note, the Chinese character 了(le) is an ending tag of a sentence in modern Chinese, expressing "about to" or "already" for a verb.
