SAYING TELEPHONE NUMBERS

by Bob Wilson at autoenglish.org

 
 

 

 

 

 
The Music - phone numbers are pronounced like poems.
  Follow the music of the pronunciation. Be careful about one thing. For "4895", for example, English speakers always say, "four-eight-nine-five" and NOT "forty-eight ninety-five".
  Listen and repeat
 
678 - 390 - 782
262 - 487 - 597
171 - 458 - 842
Double numbers      
00 - 44 -730 - 65 - 214
00 - 34 - 562 - 811
99 - 55 - 438 - 22
Listen and write down six phone numbers
ANSWERS      
       
The "Oh" Problem
  English speakers often say the letter "oh" for the number "zero". When "oh" is combined with some numbers, it is difficult to hear, for example "oh-eight-oh". I recommend always saying "zero" and "double zero".
  Listen and repeat
 
908 - 409 - 007
00 - 1703 - 9011
0044 - 9608 - 03
Listen and write down six phone numbers
