I never make calls or leave a message. In reallity i don't like to make calls, when i do it i feel so nervous. But when i nedd to do it, i just do it. I learnt new vocabulary with this activity.

Yes, i do make phone calls. Every day, i make many calls for various purposes. But, i generally don't leave a voice message. If needed, i use text message.
