Who Are You Calling?

SCENARIO



Imagine you are calling someone on the phone. A relative, a friend or a colleague who is with you is curious and says: "who are you calling?"

In Spanish, the other person could choose to be less formal and say:
¿A quién llamas?

Alternatively, he/ she could choose to be more formal and say:
¿A quién llama (usted)?


OUR TIP

Responding should be quite straightforward. However, before you reply, you should decide how you are going to refer to the person you are calling*.



If the person you are calling was a female (her name is María Botero) and you want to refer to her in an informal manner, you could say:
  • Llamo a María Botero (I am calling Maria Botero);
  • Estoy llamando a María Botero (I am calling Maria Botero);
  • Llamo a mi amiga María Botero (I am calling my friend Maria Botero);
  • Estoy llamando a mi amiga María Botero (I am calling my friend Maria Botero);

* NB See examples of replies when calling:




Now you should practise answering the question:
¿A quién llamas?
