I make phone calls and voice mail in English when I practice English with other people.
But usually, I make phone calls and voice mail in Bangla because I live in Bangladesh.

Thanks for reading my comment <3

I've never left a message for someone in English because my job doesn't require it. The most recent email I submitted to gg play's app store, requesting a refund for software I purchased unintentionally.

Yes, but I only use English when talking in English class because friends and my family don't often use English in normal conversation. I think I should find someone and practices English with them through voice messages to improve my skills

Do you ever make phone calls or leave voicemail messages in English?

No, I don't like to do that as in Portuguese or in English. I prefer to send text messages on Whatsapp or an email.
