Yes I do. I make only phone calls in spanish that are local level when I need to comunicate with someone. It hasn't been yet necessary to make internatinal phone calls in english. I don't usually leave voicemail messages but if it is necessary, I make phone calls again or if the receiver sees the missed call, he returns me the phone call.

how can i dowland this listening
Hello gulsahk I'm not sure what browser or device you are using, but on most, you must either right-click or press and hold until a small menu opens. There you should have an option to save the audio as an mp3 file. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team

Warda an me have been invited to celebrate the tree day at Bouchaoui park would you join us ? Pleas response me.»
