All correct. This lesson is easy but useful. Sometimes the non-English speaker they are not following this phone conversation format in real life.

    Oh! So you did well on the test? Congratulations!

    Now you’re ready to talk on the phome, aren’t you?

    Regards

      Dear Emma,

      Answering the phone may seem easy at first sight. However before we engaged on a phone conversation, we should know how to start and end it.

      Of course we also should know which expressions to use according to the level of formality in the conversation.

      Now we have the complete picture.

      Thanks Emma for this hands-on video lesson.

      Regards

      Tuesday, May 13th 2014

        I agree with you… Sometimes the words get away of my head… and it gets worst on the phone.

        Thursday, July 17th 2014

          Guess what Carol? We both have exactly the same problem. But as the saying goes “Practice makes perfect”.

Tuesday, May 13th 2014

great lesson !

Tuesday, May 13th 2014

    first show patient because you may see so many challenges during learning the language and second make more efforts to achieve your goal in terms of watching videos per day for minutes if you can hours is ok but don’t stop it by feeling disappointment or laziness that is what i’m doing right now and i am sure i am not same with how i was one year ago, every night i don’t sleep without watching video lessons and some times i watch movies with sub titles, if i remember one year ago even i couldn’t understand most words of the video lessons but today i can catch every word without subtitles.
    thanks those who dedicated their valuable time and energy and organized these useful video lessons because of us, i really appreciate you. God bless you.
