Is it OK to say your telephone number as a sequence of single digits? For example for 38 saying trois, huit instead of trent-huit.

I wonder the same thing. Only Lesson 4.3 has a telephone number within it, and without explanation. How do French people give their numbers in everyday French?

In France, they're spoken in "chunks" of two (like the exercise), so: 01 23 45 67 89 (zéro un, vingt-trois, quarante-cinq, soixante-sept, quatre-vingt-neuf)

Bonjour à tous! Yes, Torusan you are right. We tend to say our phone numbers in double-digit chunks. It can be quite difficult for foreigners to grapple with because as the numbers get larger, they get more complicated. But, in saying that, it is all good practice. Keep up the good work. - Marie-Claire
