Signing Notes:
The phrase "Can phone you?"  (or "PHONE, CAN YOU?")  typically means "Are you physically able to use the phone?"   In the "old days" we sometimes had to rely on Hearing friends to make such calls for us.  Or if we were lucky, the place we were visiting had a TTY (teletype, also known as TDDs or telecommunication device for the Deaf). Think of a TTY as a type of "text messaging" that required a "land line." TTY use is now quite rare due to the use of "video phones" and text messaging.  If you'd like more info about TTY's see: "TTY". 

Now it seems nearly everyone has "texting" capability and this isn't an issue any more, but before all of this "new technology" became widespread, suppose two Deaf were at a party…one of them might ask the other “CAN PHONE YOU?” He or she is probably trying to find out the level of the other person’s hearing and/or to find out if the other person is able to make phone calls.  Why? It depends on the context.  If it is near the end of the party and the person is looking for a way to get home he may have needed to call his (hearing) mom (or dad, or friend, ...) for a ride.  

Curriculum notes:
The phrase "Tell me about your teacher" is good practice for the sign "ABOUT", but please know that there are other ways to ask for information about someone.  For example, you should already be able to sign: "YOUR TEACHER LOOK-LIKE?"
Later on (in other lessons you will also learn: 
"YOUR TEACHER, EXPLAIN HE/SHE." or "Describe your teacher."
