Yes I was having phone calls in English in a chat app called "Hello talk", but I have never left a voice message in English to someone!

I live in a country that people don't speak English. My mother tongue is Turkish and we speak Turkish in our daily life but the official language of my country is Persian. I love English language and I just have used it in practice with my friends.

No because we use social networking applications so all of our voice messages are left on them.

No, I don’t. We only say in Burmese. I live in Myanmar and Myanmar is a developing country ( not developed country). So we don’t have any voice mail services from the telephone operators.
