Yes, I have made a phone call in English many times but haven't sent voicemail yet. But now it's super easy to make calls via internet. Nowadays, we can call our friends and family through whatsapp, imo, messenger so on and so forth. Thank you!

Well, I never leave a voicemail both English and Vietnam. When I was a sophomore, I worked as a cashier at the traditional restaurant, the customer called me to order Vietnam food. And I tried talking with them in English. Although I don't speak English well, luckily they can understand me. I think leaving a voicemail is very expensive while we can send a message. In this way, the recipient can easily record information and read it again at any time. So, I never leave a voicemail.
