I was just informed via email by my BIL that my wife, living in Germany, was in a car accident in France. Her cell is evidently not working, but I have a number she apparently can be reached at.
I probably remember enough of my high-school & college French to more or less correctly pronounce what you write out for me.
If the person who answers the phone isn’t my wife, and doesn’t speak English, how do I ask to be connected to her?
"Something like, “hello, I’m calling from America, I don’t speak French. My wife is American. She was in an accident, and is at your hospital. Her name is… May I be connected/speak with her?”
Much thanks in advance!
