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 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

never, maybe in the future when I'll be good in English ❤️

No. I don't do that.

No :( I have never called in English. This is a good time to start :)

I rarely leave voice messages in english, I rather wait to have a phone call to prevent misunderstandings. :)

Now, sending Voice messages is so much easy. Because Whatsapp and Messenger came.

No. I only leave messages when the subject is urgent!

Thank you it's very beneficial

No, I never had need to make voice phone calls or leave voicemail messagens in English, but now the company where I work have new costumers that comunicate in English.

Yes.I've sent voice message in the social networks a lot.
