English Conversation on the Phone







Before talking to someone on the phone, first we need to know the topic that we are going to discuss. Because the conversation will not take a lot of time, we need to be able to deliver our message in a short but clear way. Practicing English conversation through telephone conversation is sometimes frustrating for beginning English learners because they may not be able to hear the voice of their speaking partners clearly. Therefore, both learners should speak slowly and clearly using standard English pronunciation.
