"Give me ten seconds!"
I want to know from any native speakers if the Chinese translation for "give me ten seconds" is indeed the one expressed.
"Give me ten seconds" appears to be more of a western colloquialism
Yes, it's not very common to hear this in actual life. 等等/等一下 ("wait") is much more common. If the time span is required, they would say 再等十秒钟 ("wait another ten seconds").
