“Hello!“ ”I’m listening.» “Here!” There are so many things you can hear over the phone!
We at PeachyPost got interested in how people answer phone calls in different countries, and we’ve found some really peculiar versions.

Italy

That’s how Italians reply. Translated, it means «ready.»

Germany

Here the most common greeting is to say your name. That’s exactly what the heroine of Mondscheintarif, Cora Hübsch, did.

Japan

This cute phrase is a short version of “moshimasu-moshimasu,“ which means ”I speak, I speak.»

Greece

This is translated as «please.» Most Greeks answer the phone like this.

China

The Chinese use a short word that means «speak.»

Korea

A funny little expression that means «look here.»

Israel

The famous greeting is translated as «peace.»

Spain

Along with “diga/digame“ (”speak“ singular or plural), the Spanish often use the plain old “sí” (”yes»).

Serbia and Montenegro

This one’s translated as «please.»

Mexico

The word means «well,» and the habit of using it came from the time of constant bad connections.

Turkey

This greeting is polite when you answer the phone, but in other circumstances it means “my lord“ or ”my sire.»

India

This word is so ancient you can’t say exactly where it came from. Hindus use this greeting often because it’s believed to protect them from negative energies.
