Hi

I am having trouble writing this dialogue. Could you please help make it sound fully natural?

(Context: Some people call you on your cell but disconnect immediately for some reason.)

A - Why do you always do that?

B - What?

A - Call me and then disconnect before I can answer.

B - Usually I let a few bell go, but then cut it thinking you may be sleeping.

A - Next time you call me, let the call be complete; don't disconnect in between.

Thanks,

Tom

A - Call me and then hang up before I can answer.

B - Usually I let it go for a few rings, but then I think you may be sleeping.

A - Next time you call me, don't hang up, please.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Thanks, Clive.

Let it go for a few rings is what I wanted. Can we also say these?

Let it ring fully

Let the ringing end itself

Tom

Let it ring fully No.

Let the ringing end itself No. Sounds weird.


Interesting London slang used to be (maybe still is) Give me a bell, meaning Call me.
