Pick uppick 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 attelephone phrasal verbs.” Hi friends welcome back well in today's lesson

we are gonna look attelephone 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 oncan 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 usehang onorhold 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 theres 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

upcan 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.
