I knew all basics of creating sounds because I learned the course of Physics at the school and the university.  And I graduated from the music school, piano, so I knew how different sounds can be created by different musical tools, and our voice is one of such musical instruments.

  • When do you use formal telephone English?

We need to use formal English when we represent a company, do official calls, or talk to teachers or older people.

  • Did the video and reading help you with your formal telephone English? How?

Yes, I read some interesting sentences in http://www.englishclub.com/speaking/telephone_language.htm. I liked http://www.antimoon.com/how/formal-informal-english.htm.

  • What other questions do you have about formal telephone English?

I don’t have questions about formal and informal English. All is clear, but sometimes it’s not easy to use very official words and sentences.

  • When would you use informal telephone English?

I can use informal telephone English in everyday conversations with friends, my children, relatives.

  • What do you prefer, going out or staying in?

It depends on a situation. When I was young it was interesting to go out to meet with new people. Now I prefer meetings with dear to my heart people: my children, friends, relatives. But I like to go out, I like parks, nature places and so on.

Do you like the “International English” Greeting? Why or why not?

I knew “International English” greetings and I used to use these words every day. I didn’t think about “liking them”, I use them as all people around me.

For the following 3 people, please say which greeting is appropriate: “International English” or “Friendly American English.”

  • Your Math teacher
  • Your boss at work
  • Your American college roommate

Of course, I’ll say “Hello” or “How are you?” to  teachers or bosses. These greetings are more appropriate for them.

But if I meet my friend I can say “What’s up?” But I did not use “Yo”, may be because in my country (I’m from Russia) we didn’t know about this greeting. But I said “Yo” to my granddaughter and she liked it!

In the comments below answer the following 3 questions:

  • Did you like the text, yes or no?
  • Why?
  • Why do you think Della is not happy?

I know this story, and I know the end of this story. I liked this story many years ago when I read it in Russian. It’s very important to be able to give the most valuable thing to person who is near you. This ability is the gift of God.

Hello, ENG099!
