Hello What's your mobile number?

It depends to whom I ask. I usually don't ask for any permission when I'm talking to a girl, It makes you look weak. just tell her "give your number, we'll chat later" or "give your number, I wanna talk to you later". other wise you ask politely by using could I have, I'd like to or would you.

I'm Arabic and Islamic Teacher in Dubai. I want to participate in IELTS exam to go to any other country. I'm ready to practice with someone for IELTS purpose. Here is my whtsap. --------------------.

Hello Arabic-Expert

I can recommend a few resources for the purposes of preparing for the IELTS. The first is our IELTS section, where you can find some general advice on the different parts of the test as well as some more specific advice for the speaking exam. I'd also highly recommend visiting TakeIELTS, where there is a lot of detailed information and even some free practice materials, as well as this British Council channel in YouTube. Finally, I'd recommend taking a look at our Facebook page, where our team sometimes posts links to sites that could help you with the IELTS.

On a different note, I'm afraid our House Rules prohibit the sharing of personal information such as your phone number. This is why yours has been deleted from your comment.

All the best

What's your mobile number? I think that question is a little rude, well it depends of the moment and the person who are talking. Maybe other way would to be: Could you give me your mobile number, please?
