Japanese phrases-Phone

phon_kaiwa

In this lesson, I want to introduce useful expressions that you can use over the phone.

Let’s review a basic conversation between A and B.

Conversation 1

A : Moshi Moshi

Hello (This is used only over the phone)

B: Suzuki san wa imasuka?

Is Mr.Suzuki there?

You can also say:

Suzuki san wa irasshaimasuka?

this also means “is Mr. Suzuki there?” but irasshaimasuka is a formal verb.

A: Hai. Chotto matte kudasai.

Yes. Please hold on for a moment.

Or you can say formally

Hai. Shoushou omachi kudasai.

Wow. This is translated exactly the same way but it sounds much more formal.
