4 essential phrasal verbs for dealing with communication

This week we are going to learn some phrasal verbs to do with communication over the phone. These verbs are more used in speaking, but they are still pretty useful so I recommned you learn them. Take a look at the language bank below.

Task 1:  Study the language bank below.

call s/o back
meaning: return a phone call
example: He never calls me back.

get back to s/o
meaning: contact someone later
example: You need to get back to me quickly on this.

get through to s/o
meaning: manage to reach someone on the phone
example: I always find it hard to get through to him. He never answers his phone.

get on to s/o
meaning: contact someone to ask them for their help
example: Can you get on to them and find out why there is a delay?

 

Task 2: Complete the gaps in this voicemail message with a verb. Then underline the complete phrasal verb.
