      Useful expressions Gill; but I don´t think I am going to use them since my phone is always dead (LOL).

      When it occasionally rings, I never pick it up because I know beforehand that the line is always busy. But when I seldom do it, no one is on the phone!

      Thanks for sharing these lesson with us Gill. Don’t forget to call me up please.

      Take care, have a great day!

Hello Gill:

I’ve got 3 things to mention:
1. the phrase “Sorry, he’s on the other line” is a clear example of the weirdness of English. I’ve been told that In English you HAVE to have a subject in every sentence, but here, I don’t see a problem in saying “Sorry, is on the other line”, because it’s OBVIOUS we’re talking about HE (or HIM).
2. When you tried to write with the back part of the marker I instinctively said “the pill granny, the pill”. Hahaha, don’t be mad at me, it’s a joke.
3. The phrase “There’s no-one of that name here” is not a good one here in Argentina because kidnappers try to use this trick to plan their future virtual kidnaps and, doing this, they know the name X is not one they can use.

Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday)

I have been thinking and counting all the sentences and expressions that teacher Gill has explained us, they are about 26 to 30 sentences to learn and remember but there aren’t very difficult, the only way it’s to practice them. By luck, I have remembered that in aviation is used the communication skills usually, if you want to check the line, you transmit to the ATC (Air Traffic Controller) the expression, RADIO CHECK, and he or she answers with five possibilities, which are, 5 for “Perfectly readable”, 4 for “Readable”, 3 for “Readable with difficulty”, 2 for “Readable now and then” and 1 for “Unreadable”, in this video class would be for me , “I read 5” or “radio 5” or “Perfectly readable”. Thanks a lot, teacher Gill, this review of telephone expressions is very useful.

    I have just written two wrong sentences, they would be alright so, “…they aren’t very difficult or there aren’t many difficulties…”, and the second would be, “…in aviation are used the communication skills…”

I wonder if I’m the only one to think that Gill or Jade or Benjamin or one of their relatives might have been in Manchester last night.

As far as I know, if you want to talk to somebody through the phone and somebody else picks up the phone, it is also correct to say: “Can I get through (name of the person), please???
Is that right or am I wrong????

Profile photo of knopfler86 knopfler86

    Hi knopfler86 — your suggestion isn’t quite right — if you’re talking to someone on the phone, even if they are not the person you want to talk to, you have already ‘got through’, ie made the connection. It’s better to say “Could I speak to (name), please?” All the best!

    Profile photo of Gill Gill

      Thank you for your explanation Gill!!!I understand now the idea.
      All the best ;)

Hello Gill!

That’s a quite useful lesson not only when we are speaking English but also when we are speaking our own languages. Sometimes we sound rude or impolite on the phone for not following these rules.

Moreover, I have always wanted to learn this vocabulary which is so helpful in our everyday life.

Thanks one more time!

I think, in case of dialling a wrong number, to be more polite someone should reply, “Sorry, It’s a bad number. It’s not your fault. It is the fault of that bad number!” :)
