no, I have never leave a voice message in English. And I am afraid of a phone call as well cause I think I can be embarrassing if I don't understand...but this week I did my first phone call I felt comfortable and confident and I understood every thing....

I never make phone calls or leave a voicemail in English. Actually, I feel nervous or blank when I try to speak English, especially to native speakers.

That was a nice exercise. I didn't know how to say "@" in English, this can be very useful.

No, I have never left a call message in English, first because I don't have a native English language friend and I still don't feel comfortable and secure talking in English on the phone.
