48000Re: [Czechlist] "Call us on"
- Dec 28, 2011In North America you call someone "on" a device but "at" a number.
In a British ESL book I had to use in the Czech Republic, a job interviewer asked a man, "Are you on the phone?" In North America that means, "Are you using the phone to talk to someone right this moment?" but I guess in the book it was supposed to mean, "What is your phone number?"
