A: The phone rings!
B: Hello!
A: May I speak to Mary please?
B: OK, just hond on please. Mary! You have the phone.

- Did I use the right two phrases here "just hond on please" and "Mary! You have the phone"?

Thanks a lot!

    You could also say "Just hold on, please".

    - Instead of "Mary! It's for you" can I say "Mary! Someone want to talk to you" or "Mary! The phone is waiting for you"? :)

    Thanks a lot!

    I have just noticed that: "A: The phone rings!" If that is A speaking, then it should be "A: The 'phone's ringing!" But I don't think that first A should be there. I mean, it should read: " (the 'phone rings), B: Hello?, A:May I speak to Mary...etc"

    Alex_Murphy have a look at my original post where I correct namlan's script with "just hang on please" and then say underneath, "you can also say..." as an alternative to "hang on". I was not allowing "hond"!
