Telephone English ☎️ Phrasal Verbs – Improve English Speaking | Speak English Fluently At Workplace


“Pick up… pick up, pick up pick up…”
“Hello, hey this is Niharika here, can you put me through Mr. Johnson please?” “Hello?
Hello? Hello?” “Ah! Bad connection…” “well I got jarred off.” Hey this is Niharika
here, welcome back in today’s lesson we are gonna look at “telephone phrasal verbs.”
Hi friends welcome back well in today’s lesson we are gonna look at “telephone phrasal
verbs.” Now we have learnt about telephone skills, we have learnt about different telephone
phrases that we end up using when we are having a conversation with someone over the phone,
but then what are phrasal verbs? Now here I have eight phrasal verbs that you can use
when you are talking to someone or when you’re trying to get connected to someone over the
phone. So let’s see what they are and how you would end up using them. The first phrasal
verb that I have for you is, “pick up”. Now what does this really mean? Well pick
up means, to answer a telephone call. So when you want someone to answer the call, your
phone is ringing and you want someone to answer the call, you can end up using the phrasal
verb, ‘pick up’. “Hey, could you please pick up the call for me?” So which means
you’re asking someone to answer the call for you. Or when you are trying to get connected
to someone and that person is not answering, then you think to yourself that, “ah, why
he is not picking up?” So which means that, ‘why is he not answering the call?’ okay?
So that’s how you can use this phrasal verb. Moving on to the next phrasal verb that we
have related to telephone is, “put through”. When do you use this? Well put through is
when you are trying to connect someone to somebody. Okay so probably someone calls you
and asks for a person that they want to speak to, so they would use the phrasal verb, ‘put
through’. For example, “hey could you please put me through the doctor, it’s an
emergency.” So you want to get connected to the doctor because you want to speak to
him, okay? So when you want to get connected, or when you want to talk to someone, you end
up using the phrasal verb, ‘put through’, okay? “Could you please put me through to
the dentist please?” Okay that’s how you can use this phrasal verb. Moving on to the
next one that I have for you which is, “hang on”. Now we have two phrasal verbs that
you can use when you want to ask someone to wait, okay? Or to hold the line. So if you
want to use an informal phrasal verb, then you can use, ‘hang on’. “hey could you
please hang on for a minute, I’ll put him through.” Okay, ‘hang on’ can be used
in an informal way, but in informal way the phrasal verb that you can use is, “hold
on”. “could you please hold on for a minute?” Okay, so when you want to ask someone to wait
for a minute or so, for a short period, over that phone, then you can use ‘hang on’
or ‘hold on’, alright? Let’s move on to the next phrasal verb that we have for you
which is, “get through”. “I can’t get through the operator, what’s wrong?” So
what does get through really mean? Well get through means that you are unable to connect
to someone. Okay so you desperately want to talk to someone and you’re just not able to
get connected, for various reasons. Maybe someone is not picking up the call, someone
is not putting you through, okay so for example you call someone and it’s the operator and
you know, she’s not putting you through so yes you can’t get through Mr. Johnson. Okay,
so there are various reasons that you’re not able to get connected to the person that you
want to speak to. So get through is, to get connected. Of course over the phone, alright?
To get connected over the phone and that is when you can use the phrasal verb, ‘get
through’, alright? The next phrasal verb that I have for you is, “ring back”. “oh
I am really busy and I have to ring back or I’ll have to call you back.” So there are
two phrasal verbs that you can use when you are telling someone that yes I will call you
or I will return your call. So you can either use that, “hey, I’ll have to ring you back,
I am extremely busy right now.” Or you can use the phrasal verb, ‘call back’. “I’ll
have to call you back because I’m very busy right now”, okay? So when you are telling
someone that, ‘yes I will return your call’, these are the two phrasal verbs that you can
use in English. Alright, moving on to the next phrasal verb that we have is, “speak
up”. “Could you be speak up, hello?” “I can’t hear you, could you please speak
up?” Well when you say that speak up or when you are asking someone to speak up, it
means that you’re asking someone to speak a little louder, you can’t hear him. Maybe
there’s bad Network or the person just speaks very slow and you can’t really hear him. So
he’s not audible to you, so you would ask that person to speak up. Okay, so speak up
means when you’re asking someone to speak louder, right? Now you don’t have to really
scream on top of your lungs, when you’re asking someone else to be louder you can just say
that hey I’m unable to hear you, could you please speak up? Okay, so be nice, you don’t
have to shout. Moving on to the next phrasal verb which is, “jarred off”. Now you can
either use the phrasal verb, “jarred off” or you can use, “cut off”. Now when a
telephone conversation is interrupted, probably because the call got disconnected or are probably
there’s bad network and you’re not able to get through that person, then you can either
use the phrasal verb, “jarred off”, “oh, well the conversation was jarred off”, well
because the conversation was interrupted, maybe because of a bad network, bad connection
or maybe because someone just hung up. So jarred off or cut off. “Oops! Well the telephone
call was cut off.” So cut off again it means when the conversation is interrupted, okay?
And then the last phrasal verb that I have for you is, “hang up”. Now hang up can
be used in two different ways, when you just disconnect the call you say, “okay, I’ll
talk to you later, I’ll have to hang up right now.” So hang up is when you’re telling
a person that, yes I’m gonna go ahead and disconnect the call. But it is also used when
you are really mad at someone, you’re angry, you just don’t want to speak to that person
and you hang up, so you disconnect in a very rude manner without even saying a bye. So
my mom was so upset with me, because I was out all night long with my friends and when
I called her well she hung up on me. So, “hang up” can be used to disconnect the call.
“oh yes, it’s time to get to work, so I’m gonna hang up, I’ll talk to you later.”
That is when you can use this phrasal verb but you can also use it when you are telling
someone that yes this person was so angry was so mad at me that she hung up on me, okay?
So when someone is angry and disconnects the call then you can use the phrasal verb, ‘hang
up’. Alright, so these are the eight telephone phrasal verbs that you can use on daily basis.
So it’s not just about using various telephone phrases but yes when it comes to talking over
the phone or when you’re trying to get connected to someone, then these are the eight phrasal
verbs that you can use in English. So start using them if you aren’t using them and I’ll
be back with a new lesson soon, till then you take care.

    Great lesson! I'm a Native speaker, and these are all correct 👍👍👍.

    'Cut off' is a lot more common than 'jarred off', but another REALLY common phrase when you lose connection during a phone call is 'the call got dropped' which means the connection ended. Also 'call back' is more common than 'ring back'

    If you see this, please give it a like so other people can learn. Good luck with your English everyone!

    Pick up –
    (to answer a call.)
    Could you please pick up the call for me?
    Why she's not picking up?

    put through –
    (when you want to connect two calls.)
    Could you please put me through to the concerned official?

    Hang on! (informal)
    hold on (formal)
    (wait for sometime.)
    Hi, could you hang on for a minute?
    Hang on! I will put him through.

    Get through –
    (use this when you are not able to get connected )
    I can't get through the manager. What happened?

    Bring back / Call back
    (to talk after sometime, to call after sometime)

    Speak up –
    ( requesting someone to speak a little louder.)
    Could you please speak up?
    I am unable to hear you. please speak up.

    Jarred off / cut off
    (when the conversation is interrupted, when the call gets disconnected.)
    The conversation is Jarred off and the recipient has hung up.

    Hang up
    (1. when you want to end the conversation
    2. when you don't want to talk to a person, when you are angry and disconnect the call)
    I don't want to talk to you anymore. I hang up.

    Jarred off? No. Sorry. I am 51 and a native English speaker. I have never heard that phrase before in my whole life until I came here looking for some inspiration for my TEFL class. Call back is far more common than ring back. I like the rest though, and I like the energy you put into your lessons.
