Say It Right: “Stop Here, Please”

Unless you’re interested in going around and around a taxi in circles and circles and even more circles until your head gets so dizzy that oh my god I think I need to stop.

(The word for here is bolded. You could learn to shout that instead!)

French: Arrêtez-vous ici, s’il vous plaît.
Spanish: Deténgase aquí, por favor.
Arabic: قِفْ هُنا رَجاءً.
Mandarin: 请你停在这儿? [Pinyin: Qĭng nĭ tíng zài zhè er.]*
English: That building, right over there.

*师傅停这儿 [shī fu tíng zhè er] can also be used alternatively.
