I have never leave a message in English. I'm live in a Hindi speaking country. I'm here to learn English to leave a message in English.
Thank you

I tried one time. I called the hotel for the fitness prices…It’s pity that they didn’t have special price for that time.

I rarely make call in English because I’m not in English speaking environment but I try to speak in English when calling my friends.usually I send voice note on WhatsApp because it’s easy to use.so I used to spent time on voice notes rather than typing the message whole day.the voice notes are easily understandable than text message because we can convey the message and feelings through our voice clearly so l prefer voice notes to message
