Is there only 1 lesson in the voicemail section?
Hello prem_translator In this section (Listening at the A1 level), this is the only audio message, but there are similar listenings in the other listening levels (A2, B1, B2, C1) -- for example, https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/pre-intermediate-a2-listening/invitation-party .

I never make phone calls or leave voice mail messages in english, because I don´t know anyone in England or in United States, but I would want to do. . Definit I need a friend there to do it.

Yes, I usually make phone calls in English. Sometimes I call my friends. If I want to get some information from an organization or any other office, I often use English language. However, I rarely leave voicemail messages.
