IN THIS LESSON
ID: 2864 Intermediate
In this lesson you'll learn useful language for calling up and trying to book an appointment with a hair salon. While some of the language is a bit easier than usual, when you're on the phone, you don't have any body language cues to reply on and you'll also have to juggle lots of times in your head while listening. We recommend having a notepad by your side. Need to call up and book a dentists appointment? Check this lesson: Rebooking a Dentist Appointment Photo by Kim Siever
