Have you ever made a telephone call in a foreign language? If yes, how did it go?

It went a little rough as I am still a beginner but it is good to keep on trying.

It is notoriously difficult - most people find it harder than face-to-face conversation. If you are already good at conversation though, it's just a matter of getting accustomed to phone calls, imo.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Exactly. My broken Spanish is funny over the phone. Face to face would be better since you can do some gestures and point out something you wanted to express.
