If the person you want to talk to is not there, you can leave a message. Here is a sample conversation.
Speaker A: Hello, this is Stella. Who is that speaking?
Speaker B: Hello, this is Kevin. Can I speak with John?
Speaker A: I’m afraid he’s not in at the moment.
Speaker B: That’s all right. Can I leave a message?
Speaker A: Sure. Hold on a moment, please. Let me get a pen and paper… OK, I’m ready.
Speaker B: Great. Can you tell Ram that tomorrow’s meeting has been postponed to Thursday?
Speaker A: OK… meeting postponed to Thursday. Does he know where the meeting is?
Speaker B: No, he doesn’t. Tell him that the meeting is at 4 pm at our head office near the Town Hall.
Speaker A: OK… meeting at 4 at head office. Anything else?
Speaker B: Could you ask him to call me back when he arrives? I’ll leave my phone number just in case he doesn’t have it.
Speaker A: OK, I’m ready.
Speaker B: Yes, please write down. My cell number is 932 086 4632.
Speaker A: That’s 932 086 4632.
Speaker B: Yes. Thanks for your help.
Speaker A: I’ll tell him about your call as soon as he gets in.
Speaker B: Thank you. Good bye.
