Day 191 MAKING PHONE CALLS – (looking for someone) 喂,您找哪位? 我找王老五。

喂,您找哪位? Hello, who are you looking for?

我找王老五。I want to talk to Wang Lao Wu.

Notes: In China, if there are five kids in the family, we call the oldest one 老大, literally “old big one”; the second one we called 老二, literally “old number two”…老五 “old number five”. 王老五means, his family name is Wang, and he is the fifth son in Wang’s family.
