Listen to a voicemail message and answer the questions to practise your listening skills.

Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.


John: Hi, this is John. Thanks for calling. I'm not here at the moment, so please leave a message and I'll call you back.

Marina: Hi, John, this is Marina Silva calling from Old Time Toys. Your colleague Alex gave me your phone number. She said you can help me.

I need some information on your new products. Could you please call me when you are back in the office? My phone number is 0-2-0-8, 6-5-5-7-6-2-1.

Also, can you please email me your new brochure and information about your prices? My email address is Marina, that's M-A-R-I-N-A, dot Silva, S-I-L-V-A, at O-L-D-T-I-M-E hyphen toys dot com.

Yeah really! I have made it more times because when the person you wents will be necessary for you, so if he didn’t answer your call may be he is busy so you should have to leave a voicemail, i made it more.

can anyone explaine ro me the different between
can - could
for example ..
can you help me
could you help me
what is the different ?

Hello muhammed7,

Both of those sentences are correct. The one with 'could' is a little more polite, but in informal situations 'can' is also just fine.

You can read a lot more about 'can' and 'could' on the following pages.

As you can see, we use both of these words a lot in English!

Please let us know if you have any more questions on any of those pages.

Best wishes,
LearnEnglish team
