I often ask someone for their phone number. I usually ask girls. It looks like this: "could you give me your phone number?"

Submitted by tenedos on Thu, 03/10/2019 - 19:24

I would say that there are lots of people who don't remember their phone number exactly. Then ı would ask "what about you?" Let's try it .

I don't why, but I can't watch the video, it doesn't load Could someone help me?
Hello rubky9 Are you able to see the other Starting Out videos (for example, episode 1 or 3)? If you were able to see them or are able to see the video now, it was probably a temporary technical error. I've just checked and it's working for me, so I think it should be fine now. If you still can't see the video, I'd suggest you try using a different web browser or a different device to see if it works there. This often solves the problem, but if you still can't see it after trying that, please let us know what browser version you are using and we'll do our best to help you. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team

"Can I have your moblie number please?" is the way I usually ask. "What's your mobile number?" sounds like too direct if a guy asks from a girl or doesn't it?
