Phone conversations

Have you ever found communicating on the phone a difficult task?


I have tried to collect some of the most frequently used English phrases, words we can use in telephone conversations:

  • Hello, how are you?
  • good morning/good afternoon /good evening
  • Hello this …(your name)
  • Can I please speak to ….
  • I would like to speak to…
  • Can I leave a message, please?
  • Do you know when he/she will be available?
  • I will call back later.
  • Can I leave my telephone number? My phone number is…
  • What is her/his mobile phone number?
  • The number is busy.
  • Sorry, I can’t hear you.
  • Please speak slowly.
  • The line was disconnected.
