Inside Amy Schumer, “Calling The Cable Company”


The Clip

Amy’s internet connection is playing up so she takes a deep breath and picks up the phone to the cable company helpline. Full of funny moments, the situation she finds herself in during the call is one everybody can relate to.

Level and Language Focus

The service language used in the clip is not too difficult to understand and could be used for a strong pre-intermediate class upwards. An obvious extension would be an activity on telephone English, or the clip could provide a good introduction to the topic.
