Speech Work: Call And Responses

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are excited to have you join our class!!

In today’s English class, we will be learning about Speech Work: Call And Responses

The speech work we are about to look at is about a conversation showing how a call is made and the responses that follow. 

Call And Responses

  • A phone rings, a girl rushes to answer the call from the living room. 
  • A caller is the person who makes or places a call across to the receiver. 
  • A receiver is the person who received the call.

Call and responses

Caller: Hello, good morning


Receiver: Good morning. Who’s on the line?


Caller: Is this Mr William’s youngest daughter?


Receiver: Yes, who are you?


Caller: I am Mr Gabriel, the class teacher of Mabel Williams. That should be your sister if I’m right. 


Receiver: Yes, sir! Who would you like to speak with?


Caller: I’d like to speak with your parents. Could you please pass the phone to them?


Receiver: I’m sorry, my parents are currently out of the house. I’ll inform them about your call, as soon as they’re back. 


Caller: Thank you. Have a pleasant day.


From the conversation we just read, we can see that calls and responses involve two persons, sometimes more than two. One person cannot be a caller and also a receiver. 



Explain the purpose of the conversation between the caller and receiver?
