Most telephone conversations are different from face to face ones. This is mainly because while talking on phone, we do not normally see the face of the person we are talking with, unless when making a video call. We can tell whether they are happy or not only through what they say. In a face-to-face dialogue, a smile would show friendliness, but in a telephone chat, the smile cannot be seen.
Therefore, when talking on telephone, we need to be careful about the words we use. Polite words like "Please", "Excuse me", May I," "Thank you", "It's my pleasure" and "I beg your pardon" show that we respect the person we are talking to on phone. We should try to use the words more frequently not only when talking on phone but also in our face-to-
