Unformatted text preview: 08/11/2011 Making Telephone Calls ? ? ? dă diàn huà Bei3 jing2 ? ? background
When Chinese people make a phone call, they ask for the addressee by name directly.
However, it is not their habit to give their own name first when making receiving a call. It
is very convenient to make international calls which can be dialed directly at hotels,
foreigner's mansion, office building, etc. ? ?
