In this case, I never call to my friends in English, because they don't understand English. I have a brother who is in India, and sometimes I chat with him in English. I should say that it is the main problem of mine that I don't have an English student partner. If there were somebody, I would prefer to call him/her and speak English. Regards, Tayyebi

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.
