Tunisian Arabic 101: Telephoning

The other day, I got hold of Kais from Tunisia and he was again generous of his time to share us some Tunisian Arabic conversational phrases. This time they are phrases and sentences used for telephone conversation. I am posting the first five (5) telephone conversation phrases and will post the other 5 next time.  To know how they are read, go to Google Translate, copy and paste the Arabic text on the box and  and click the volume button just like this. Have fun!
