No, I don´t. Because the country where I am form and the contacts I have, I´m not accustomed to make phone calls in English nor leave voicemail messages. There were only around three times when I call and speak in English, the first one, it was a call for asking for information about a bilingual high school I´d like to work someday. The second call I made, it was for asking to an American guy who is a chiropractor for information about the price of his service. And thirdly, it was because my Laptop was broken and I needed it repaired as soon as possible, and he was the only person who could help me by then, he was an American guy too. I´ll try to have more contacts in order to get fluency at English and become a bilingual person. My main goal now, it is to get a C1 English level by January 2021. (So, this is why I´m taking these great resources at this Platform!)
