I never leave a massage to anyone. Because my colleague is all Vietnamese, I currently work in VietNam.

And now everyone also send email if they want to get information about something.

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

No, I have never ever made phone calls or leave any voicemail messages in Enghlish. I'm a college student in Vietnam and I am surrounded by Vietnamese all day. I try to English through books, videos so the opportunities for me to speak English is next to nothing let alone calling or sending voicemail messages in English. But never mind, I'm still trying to speak English on my own. I hope all you guys pull English off.

unfortunately no, I don't do it, because in our country we don't speak English, It's the third language afer Arabic and French.

I have never made a phone call or let a message voice yet because I don't feel confident about it. Actually it is important I start doing it and it s a kind to improve my English language. Time to be brave!!!!
