Yes, I usually make phone calls in English. Sometimes I call my friends. If I want to get some information from an organization or any other office, I often use English language. However, I rarely leave voicemail messages.

Yes I do. I make only phone calls in spanish that are local level when I need to comunicate with someone. It hasn't been yet necessary to make internatinal phone calls in english. I don't usually leave voicemail messages but if it is necessary, I make phone calls again or if the receiver sees the missed call, he returns me the phone call.

how can i dowland this listening
Hello gulsahk I'm not sure what browser or device you are using, but on most, you must either right-click or press and hold until a small menu opens. There you should have an option to save the audio as an mp3 file. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
