Lesson Transcript

We hope that in today's lesson we'll introduce you to some phrases that you won't have to use. While the threat of physical violence is not prevalent, when traveling to the US you should always be careful. In addition, this phrase is not limited to threatening situations, but you can also use it in the unfortunate event that you or someone around you is in the need of immediate assistance. Today, we'll learn how to call for help.
Even if everyone wishes nothing bad or dangerous happens while on holiday, it's better if you know some important useful phrases to use in case of emergency.
You would yell Help if you ever need...well...help. Help!
There's actually another way to call for help. People might respond to the word Fire! More than to help. This is because people don't want to get involved in other people's problems so much, but people are always curious about fires. So, if you want immediate attention, Fire! will get it. You can of course use this in case of a real fire.
If you need to call the police, shout, Police! Once again, that's Police!
The phone number for any emergency in the States is 911.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- Help!
- Fire!
- Police!
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!
