How often do you make phone calls in English?
Suddenly I do not make as many phone calls in English as I would like, but occasionally I talk to a friend whom live in the USA and we speak in English a little bit. At my work I sometimes receive phone calls from providers of software whom call from countries where they speak English at the first language, so I have the opportunity to practice some speaking with them.
Thanks for the episode.
I've never made phone call in English because i have noone to call in English with.
I was making phone calls in english with people from different countries in a learning language app.
I have never made a phone call in English so far, I just send simple messages on messenger or something like that and I am sure I will use English a lot in the future.
No, I have never called someone in English. However, I would like to try it, but I don't have any friends to study English with :(
I have never made phone calls in English. Because my English listening and speaking is so bad. So, I am not enough to be confident to communicate by English language.
No, I never leave a message in English. I live a message in hindi. I write message in English.
