For me, I never leave voicemail message in English formally. But I leave message alot in English for practice English. I have English speaking practice group in messenger. So I always try to leave voicemail. I think this is a kind of leaving voicemail. Thank you so much for offering this valuable English listening lesson.

I didn't before but now I have to do because I live in London and here usually people leave a massage or make phone calls to anyone.

Hi, I'm Vietnamese. I rarely make calls instead I usually send messages. And in Vietnam we hardly use voicemail messages. One more thing I have never used English to call anyone
