Phone numbers
The phone number for the White House is 202-456-1414. The number for emergencies is 911.

 

Phone numbers have a rhythm. Here’s the rhythm for the White House number: 202-456-1414.

 

First you say the area code: 202.
Then you say the first three numbers: 456.
Then you say the last four numbers: 1414.

 

Note the pauses between each set of numbers: 202 (pause) 456 (pause) 1414.

 

What’s your phone number? Try using the same rhythm that I used for the White House number: 202-456-1414.
