Welcome to Telephoning, an online course to help intermediate students improve their English telephoning skills, especially business phone calls. This course includes lessons, topics and quizzes, but it can’t replace the roleplaying and live practice you experience in the classroom with other students, where you get to do a lot more speaking. You can work on this online material whenever you need it, and you can take the quizzes as often as you like. Try to get 100%!
