I don't like leaving voicemail messages. In Russia people often make phone calls. Voicemail messages aren't popular in my country.

I have never make phone call in English. I want to talk in English but I'm kind of scared to speak out loud. I wish I had a chance.

i want to downloads voice how??

Hello mohammed,

If you are using a computer, you can right-click on the audio player and choose 'Save As'. If you're using another device, I'm afraid it depends on what the device is.

All the best,
