    Smile Nice to talk to you...

    Dear teachers,

    Can I use the expression "Nice to talk to you" on the phone in the beginning of talks when I first call someone?

    If not, what can I say?

    Thank you in advance and have a nice day.

    Re: Nice to talk to you...

    Well, it depends if this is a person who is your friend, or from whom you want a favor, or what.

    Sometimes it's "Is this a good time to talk?" or "Thank you for taking my call."

    Very generally, though, what you have suggested is better for the end of the conversation, with a slight modifcation - "It was nice talking to you."
