I did not try to leave a voicemail either in English or in my mother language, because in my country we did not use voicemail a lot, I can say I never have seen anybody using voicemail :)

Marina Silva must be Brazilian just like me. This is a very common name in here. Also her accent is very familiar.

Yes, I do it sometimes. Mostly when I want to practise my speaking skills, I call my friends from France and we speak in english because I don't speak french and they don't speak spanish.
