Each lesson comes with a useful language sheet, a video, and quizzes and exercises to make sure you understand everything properly. Ready? OK, let’s go!
How to… make an informal phone call!
Why you should learn this language!
We often need to make informal phone calls so we can talk to friends or work colleagues. But speaking on the phone in another language is never easy as you can’t see the other person’s face or gestures. There are also set words and expressions that you need to learn to use on the phone. But don’t worry! In this lesson, we’ll teach you how to make an informal phone call easily and effortlessly.
