A student asks, “do we call someone or call to someone on the telephone?”
When using the phone, we call someone. For example:
- I called my mom last night.
- Let’s call the restaurant and make a reservation.
“Call to” means to shout so that someone who is a distance away can hear you. I might call to my kids if they go to far away on the playground. A soccer coach would call to the players on the field, giving them instructions from a distance.
