If my name is John Chan.
Someone called and say, "may I speak to mr Chan please?" what should I answer? Is it correct to answer "Mr.Chan is speaking. Who is this?"
How about if someone say "may I speak to john, please?" ...."John's speaking. Who is this" ?
You can answer, "Speaking" or "That's me" or maybe more polite "Mr Chan speaking"
"Who is this? " I find a little abrupt and possibly rude? " Who am I talking to?" would be better
"John speaking" - "Who am I talking to"
Anonymous:Just say, this is he.
