Not yet it but I want to do it soon, is it my answer correct?

Hi itamar,

It looks good but delete 'it' after 'Not yet'. :)

Actually, we don't generally correct users' comments here, but if you have a question about something, feel free to post it here and we'll try to help!

Yes, I made lots of calls in which i talked i English with my teachers, classmates and friends, but I did not put any voice message in English yet. I got the idea to put voice message in English for friends and classmates to improve my English.

I never leave any voicemail or something like this. When something is urgent I call a phone letter or write a message about calling

why it does not work?

Hello khaled.alabbasy,

I've checked the page and everything seems to be working correctly, so I can only assume that your problem is a local one related to the device you're using, your internet settings or your local provider. I suggest accessing the page on a different device to see if you are experiencing compatibility issues. Sometimes certain devices (mobile devices in particular) have problems with certain pages.

No, I never made it. Because, I just needed English to use when I was doing waiterness. So, I didn't study anybody to make a communication with English. I just got ne English voice message from my English teacher which was about my question. That's it.

No I didn't, at least not many often as I would like to practise my English, I sometimes receive phone calls from people who speak English though. Most of the times I need to write emails in English to customers and suppliers but I rarely need to call them.

Thanks for the lesson.
Great site!
