Hi Maria, we would recommend computer audio at which point you can use the "Test Speaker & Microphone" tool, otherwise calling in is a good option.

I love the rich tapestry of our many diverse languages across the world. Each one precious. I've always felt the Babel tower story in my Catholic religion was of fun not of a curse. I would have been curious to try engage with each one and in fact often have done that at personal and professional level. The world of this both initiatives is admirable and wish you great progress.
