    please help me to correct this sentence.

    Hi,


    We have talked to each other via microphone twice.


    Is the sentence wrong? If so, how to correct it?

    Re: please help me to correct this sentence.

    'Via microphone', though perhaps technically correct, is oddly phrased and very vague. Were you speaking across a stadium via the public address system? Were you on Skype? On your cellphones? All of those media use microphones.

    The rest of your sentence is fine, but instead of 'microphone' use 'Skype' or whatever medium is correct.
