    Re: call

    'Whom did you call?'

    Not a teacher.

    This is correct, but you will hear "Who did you call?" from most normal native speakers.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: you can go your entire life without ever saying "whom." Know it exists, so you understand it if you see it. But don't waste time learning a difficult language like English on technicalities that the vast majority of natives have abandoned.
