I prefer to call at other moments because I feel that my messages don't arrive or I feel uncertain about if the message was clear for the other person. by the way, I never have spoken in English with another person, I hope to do it soon.

I have never left a voice message in English, but I want to do it because it is a way of knowing if another person understands me.

I never did that, I feel embarrased when I speak in English. I hope that your lessons will help me to be more confident, to speak English fluently.

I don't like leaving voicemail messages. In Russia people often make phone calls. Voicemail messages aren't popular in my country.
