Say It Right: “A Glass of Water, Please”

Harro, well, I’m certainly not a camel but there’s gotta be a way to sustain myself and what my body needs.

(The word for water is bolded. As for which syllable it is, you’re on your own. Oh no, learning!)

French: Un verre d’eau, s’il vous plaît.
Spanish: Un vaso de agua, por favor.
Arabic: كُبايات ماء رَجَاْءً
Mandarin: 请给我一杯? [Pinyin: Qǐng gěi wǒ yì bēi shǔi.]
English: What’s that?
