Due to I am afraid of being wrong in the answer or misunderstanding, I don’t like to leave any message neither make a phone call just a text message, after checking, through a translator whether it is right

Since I have a girlfriend who is a native speaker of English, sometimes I leave voice messages on WhatsApp and we make phone calls in English as well.

Do you ever make phone calls or leave voicemail messages in English?
No, I never have left a message in English, only in Spanish, but, I hope to leave a message in English soon when I learn English very well.

Do you ever make phone calls or leave voicemail messages in English?

A good question. I never make phone calls or leave voicemail messages in English, even Vietnamese. If I can't call, I'll call back later, or wait until they call me again.
