3x365 Russian Words, Day 190, Taxi (part II)

I am going to get a taxi next to start a weekend trip:

“Я хотел бы заказать такси”

“I would like to order a taxi”

“Haluaisin tilata taksin”

Words here are mostly old, but still useful:

  1. хотел - singular, past of imperfective of “to want” - haluaisin

  2. бы - makes the sentence conditional (yes, interesting, need to come back to this) - ending -isi is the Finnish equivalent

  3. заказать - to order - tilata
