Business – Answering the telephone
Today, let’s look at how to introduce yourself on the telephone.
When you answer the phone in English, what should you say?
|A) Hello, I am John speaking.B) Hello, this is John speaking.
C) G’day, John is talking.
The correct answer is: B!
Yes! On the phone we us the phrase ”This is …. speaking”.
So how about in business calls?
The same thing! The phone rings… You can say:
IN THE COMMENTS, RECORD YOURSELF ANSWERING THE PHONE.
You can either TYPE your answer, or RECORD yourself using ‘add audio only comment’. (You need a microphone to record yourself!)
