https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/bizpod/925English-L035-Telephone-Skills-1.mp3 In today’s 925 English video lesson, we’re going to learn some expressions for answering the phone in English. Using the telephone is an important part of business. But the way we communicate is a little different from in-person conversations. We have some special expressions we use to answer the phone, ask for clarification, and get a callback. At the start of a phone call, it’s a good idea to make sure the other person knows who you are. You can identify yourself in a few different ways. Besides saying “my name is,” we often use the expression “this is” before our name. But don’t try to use this expression in person. I only say “this is Tim” when I’m talking on the phone. 925 English is a new series of English videos for beginners (CEFR level A2). With 925 English you can learn business English expression for work.
