Can You Say That Again?

LUKE: Hello? Hi, Stephanie, how are things at the office?

STEPHANIE: Hi, Luke! How are you? Can you please stop and pick up extra paper for the computer printer?

LUKE: What did you say? Can you repeat that, please? Did you say to pick up ink for the printer? Sorry, the phone is cutting out.

STEPHANIE: Can you hear me now? No, I need more computer paper. Listen, I’ll text you exactly what I need. Thanks, Luke. Talk to you later.

LUKE: Thanks, Stephanie. Sorry, my phone has really bad reception here.
Conversation Notes
  • There are a few ways to express a lack of understanding and to request additional information. The most common ones are stated, but you can also say “Excuse me” or simply “I can’t hear you.” In a more formal situation, try saying “I’m sorry?” or “I beg your pardon?” (with a rising intonation).
  • When asking someone to clarify information try saying Can you please repeat that? / Can you spell that for me? / Can you please write down the address for me?
  • Cutting out describes a difficulty in understanding a caller due to poor cell phone reception. If you are having trouble understanding the caller, you can also say The line is breaking up / I am losing you. If the phone call is disconnected because of poor reception, you can say The call dropped.
  • Talk to you later is the equivalent in a phone conversation of “See you later” in a regular, face-to-face conversation.
  • Reception here means the availability of cellular service, the possibility to receive and give calls on a cell phone. Cell phone reception can be limited in remote areas, inside large buildings or underground (in the subway, for instance).
