in a casual way can i use 救命 ?
In a casual way, You can say 救命 to say “Help me/Save me” when you are in danger and in need of help. 帮帮我 also can be used casually too but only for small matters.
You can use 救命 or 救我 救命 actually means save (my) life 救我 means save me. Help me in Chinese is 帮我。 Hope this helps!!!
Help me = 帮我 save me = 救我
In Mandarin Chinese : ‘Help!’ : 救命啊! (“Jìumìng ā!), 救命！(“Jiùmìng!”) ‘Can you help me?’ : 你能幫我嗎？/ 你能帮我吗？ (“Nǐ néng bāng wǒ ma?”)
‘I need your help.’ : 我需要你的帮助。(simplified characters) (“Wǒ xūyào nǐde bāngzhù.”)
