Yes I tried a lot of times. to apply for a job, to book a hospital, to ask about tax return to office and bank. I get nervous whenever I make a call in English. I also speak with my friends on the phone in English I really enjoy call with foreign friends even though we don't speak English very well.

I used to do it, but as technology has evolved, we write messages.
