I am wondering one because we never had any class speaking about that at uni...
Let's say, I have to call a company and I want to introduce myself and ask to speak to someone, is the following text correct? Or is there specific expression to use?
Ludovic *** from COMPANY NAME,
I'd like to speak to Mr YYYY
Thanks in advance
My name is Ludovic *** from COMPANY NAME,
I'd like to speak to Mr YYYYY, please.'
Always speak slowly. You must remember that the person who answers the phone may have had his/her attention on something else when he/she answered.
I have been doing it this way for years and have never had any problems. The slower and more distinct you speak the less often you are asked to repeat your request.
I hope that helps.
I start to phone today and will let you know if they understand me
Lalo:sometimes for me is very difficult to express my ideas and speak clearly, I don't know how increase o down my voice or the king of accent must be used for, please could you give me some advice about this?
Thank a lot
no, in fact I have really really REALLY strong French accent
I do not know much when I have to use the intonation to modify my voice, etc...
But even today, I phoned something live 25-30 persons in the UK (Scots included!!! lol ) and they managed to udnerstand me
I just try to speak quite slowly and if they do not understand I reformulate, rather than re'saying a second time the same sentences...
I don't know if it answers your question :/ I'm not sure to have understood it.
P.S.: 1 night + 1 computer + me = A nice report in English for tomorrow morning 8.A.M.

Not to worry; I've done it meself.
People are waiting to help.
