    Speaking

    Hi Teachers,

    When someone asks to speak to you on a telephone call, and you want to tell them that it's you.

    What are the common things to say?

    I always say, "Speaking." Is this correct?

    Many thanks.

    Yes, if someone says, "I'd like to speak to Ferdie", you can say "Speaking".
    You can also say, "This is Ferdie".
