I make phone calls in mother tongue when I am working local people that's know my language. When I work internationally I make phone calls in English. That's good for me. India is diversified country so when you go far your place then language is changed. India have about 30 languages.

I have never made phone call in english. I think I cant dare this at the moment.


Actually, I'd just received few calls by English, but I'd made just one call to speak an English tongue.

Oh yes, whenever I need assitence for any company's product I often make calls in English only. That is a good practice of speaking and more comfortable for me to speak on phone rather than speaking with anyone in person.

I don't really make calls in English
