La bouffe

Sûr et certain

On the Phone

French phone formulas
Talking on the phone can be trickier than face-to-face conversations, for a couple of reasons. The lack of gestures and facial expressions means there are no visual hints to help you understand, plus there's something about the phone that makes certain sounds more difficult to distinguish. Knowing some standard phone formulas will help your brain fill in any comprehension gaps.
