When you have to use German as a language in phone calls, which have a very important place in daily life and business life, it is possible to access information that you can complete your call without difficulty.

In this first part of our lesson How to Ask for a German Phone Number? You can find information about how the question should be directed and how the answer should be given. Below are a few question patterns that are similar in meaning to asking the phone number in German and how to answer them in return.
Wie ist deine Telephonenummer? / What is your phone number?
Wie ist deine Festnetznummer? / What is your landline phone number?
Wie ist deine Handynummer? / What is your mobile phone number?
There is only one answer that can be given in response to these questions, which is as follows;
Meine Telefonnummer ist 1234/567 89 10./ My phone number is 1 2 3 4/5 6 7 8 9 1 0.
When pronouncing telephone numbers in German, reading and taking notes, they are spoken one by one, just like in English. If the number spoken is not understood and you want it to be repeated, contact the other person. Würdest du es bitte wiederholen?/ Could you please repeat? You can direct the question. In the continuing part of our lesson, we will include a telephone conversation that can be an example for you.
