    Give me a buzz

    Do you say "give me a buzz"? As far as I know it means "call me back", so I think it's good to know a new expression.

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Yes, but it simply means "Telephone me". It's not necessarily a call back.

    As a variation, you could use give me a bell or bell me in BrE. I don't know if these would work in other variants.

    Re: Give me a buzz

    No, sir. Not here. If you'd said "give me a bell" I'd be totally confused. But I'm glad to have one more UK phrase I'm likely to recognize now!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
