In United States, a telephone conversation usually starts like this.
Me: [Calls John]
Me: Hi, John. It's Joe.
This is between 2 people that are familiar with each other, but not so familiar that they can identify each other by their voices. Hence, it is necessary to say who you are.
How is the last sentence translated into Mexican Spanish?
- Es José.
- Soy José.
- Me llamo José.
