I usually make phone calls and I don't like to leave voicemail messages. Whenever I have something to say, I call to my friends or my parents. But sometimes they are not free I leave a message to call me when they are back.

Well I have never left messages, but voice notes but only to a friend but I would not dare to do it formally because I am afraid to speak, I still do not have fluent English.

Yes, but i feel nervious, and ask myself if they understand my pronunciation, is a good practice
