Hi guys! Definitely I am afraid of talking on phone with English people cause I think that I can't understand..
I feel nervous...but I feel comfortable and more confident when I try to speak and I realise that I understood.
No, I didn't
Yes, I do have experience making phone calls in English, particularly in my previous workplace where I was responsible for liaising with clients and suppliers. While I have experience leaving voicemail messages, I prefer to call again later if I am unable to reach someone directly. This is because not everyone checks their voicemail box frequently or carefully, and I want to ensure that my message is received and understood.
i think this is so good for the start. when i did the exercise i realize my english skill is so bad. But this make me see that i need to improve my listen skill more and more to make communicate with people who learning english all over the world

Yes, I made an interview in English before on a phone call, I was a little bit nervous, but my overall performance in this interview was good for someone who did not attend an English interviews before.
