Exercise 112

The Office

When we see or hear the word “business”, however we think first of all not of different shops, factories or mines, but offices. Modern business is done chiefly there, a day of a modern businessman is a day spent at an office. That is probably why business people pay so much attention to the way their offices look like.

I am sure you can easily imagine this place.

Usually it’s situated in a large or not very large well–planned building somewhere in the centre or in a prestige district of the city. An office should be light and clean and have necessary comfortable furniture of good quality. One more very important thing is the air. It should always be fresh and neither hot nor cold. For this purpose a lot of modern businessmen use various types of air–conditioners.

Office work usually means different forms of communication. A businessman often needs to speak to other people and he can do this by using the telephone, which is an important part of the communications system. The head of a large firm usually has two telephones on his desk. One is a usual telephone, which connects the businessman with other people in the town and in other countries. But the other one is connected to a private internal system and this makes it possible for members of the staff in different parts of the same building to talk to one another without leaving their rooms.

A businessman also communicates by writing. But he doesn’t write his letters himself, he dictates them to his secretary, usually a woman, who types them on a typewriter or with the help of a computer, and then takes them to be signed.

After that she posts all the letters or sends them using fax. Thus we can say for sure that different technical means and equipment like personal computer, fax, photocopier, printer occupy a considerable part of the office interior.

And of course speaking about offices of any kind we shouldn’t forget the person, who actually organizes the work there, who arranges meetings, makes appointments, cancels them, does most of the paper–work and answers telephone calls thus helping her boss in his business.

Re:New Office Design

We want to redesign our office space at 10 Buena Vista. Here is the general layout of the space now and a diagram. Please forward this information to your architect.

The entrance is between a meeting room on the right and a reception room on the left. There are two rows of desks near the window on the right side of the office area. A work station is on the left side of the room. There’s a copier next to a fax machine and printers. Across from the work station is a long table, in the middle of the room, is a row of filing cabinets. The director’s office is in the left corner of the room, near the work station.

Please let me know when the architect can inspect the site.

Essential telephone English vocabulary exercise part 1

To make it easier to speak on the telephone in English, before you learn what you need to say (phrases which are used like, ‘May I ask who is calling, please?’), it’s very important to understand what the meaning is of some commonly used telephone vocabulary. Vocabulary that is used when both talking on the telephone and talking about telephone calls.

In this first of two online exercises on English telephone vocabulary, you’ll first learn 11 important words and phrases which are connected to speaking on the telephone in English by reading a text. After this, you’ll use these 11 words and phrases in a quiz/text, to both make sure you know what they mean and to remember them.

To learn some commonly used phrasal verbs and expressions used when making and receiving phone calls, do the ‘second part of this exercise on essential telephone English vocabulary‘ after you have done this exercise.

In addition, to practise and learn what phrases you can both say and hear on different types of phone calls in English, look at our other exercises on telephone English vocabulary.


In the following conversation between two work colleagues (Peter and Juan), Peter explains to Juan the meaning of some commonly used English vocabulary for telephone calls.

From the context, try to guess what the meaning of the words/phrases in bold are. Then do the quiz at the end to check if you are right.

Peter: ‘Did you call Mrs Smith this morning?’

Juan: ‘Yes, I did. But I didn’t speak to her.’

Juan: ‘I think there was a problem.’

Peter: ‘Was there a problem with the phone or with the line?’

Peter: ‘The connection between your phone and hers?’

Juan: ‘I don’t know how to explain what happened in English, but there was a problem.’

Peter: ‘Ok. Let’s start from the beginning. On what type of phone did you ring her from?’

Peter: ‘It means to call. I had a problem with my phone here in the office this morning. My line was dead, so I couldn’t make or receive any phone calls. Did you call/ring from one of the landline phones here in the office?’

Juan: ‘No I didn’t ring from my phone in the office. I was outside when I rang her. ‘

Peter: ‘So, it couldn’t be a landline because it’s impossible to make calls on it outside. So, you called her outside on your mobile?’

Juan: ‘Yes, I did. I was walking to buy some food. But I thought a phone you can carry with you was called a cell phone?’

Peter: ‘It’s called a cell in North America, but a mobile phone in most other countries.’

Peter: ‘If it was from a mobile, it could have been a problem with the reception. Did you have a good call signal on your mobile when you called her?’

Juan: ‘The reception on my mobile was good. My phone had a 100% signal and before the call I rang my wife and the quality of the call was perfect.’

Peter: ‘Did you dial the right number for her? Tell me what number you dialled?’

Juan: ‘I dialled 0871 7656 2390.’

Peter: ‘That’s the right number. So what happened when you called her?’

Juan: ‘She didn’t answer. I think the reason why is that she was speaking to somebody else on another phone call when I called her.’

Peter: ‘So, her line was engaged or busy. Did you leave a message in her voicemail asking her to call you back?’

Peter’s landline phone starts ringing. He answers it.

Peter: ‘Hello Mrs Smith. Thank you for calling us back. Can you hold the line a minute, please. Thank you.

I have Mrs Smith on the phone calling for you. What extension are you on here in the office so I can transfer her call to your landline phone?’

Juan: ‘I’m on extension 1567.’

Peter: ‘Hello Mrs Smith, I’ll transfer you through to his extension now.’

Below is a definition/description of each of the words/phrases in bold from the above text. Now choose the word/phrase from the question’s selection box which you believe answers each question. Only use one word/phrase once. Click on the «Check Answers» button at the bottom of the quiz to check your answers.

When the answer is correct, two icons will appear next to the question. The first is an Additional Information Icon » «. Click on this for extra information on the word/phrase. The second is a Pronunciation Icon » «. Click on this to listen to the pronunciation of the word/phrase and to do a pronunciation speaking test.

Now that you have completed this exercise, do the second part of this exercise to learn more essential English telephone vocabulary.


Now that you understand this telephone vocabulary, practise it by making sentences in English with the new words/phrases.
