I’d like to make phone calls in English mostly, but, unfortunately I’m not confident Regarding my English and I think, I won’t have a good conversation In English with other people. That’s why, I occasionally make phone calls for my essential works and I prefer to leave a text instead of phone call.

I don't make calls because what there isn't my office or what there aren't my foreign costumers, too. In this case I just call my friends and relatives.
