Speaking in English on the phone is most difficult for me, because the other person’s voice sometimes cut off, so I have to interpret sounds I’m unable to hear. Though it’s something I can do in Japanese easily, I struggle to do it in English.
I think there are two reasons for this. The first reason is that I’ve only listened to clear English which used in text book, so I’m not used to listening to obscure English. The other reason is that my vocabulary is still limited, so I can’t guess at what they’re saying.
I have to get used to English used on the phone, something they don’t teach you in textbook.
