    Loud or low

    Hi guys,

    We say "Please speak a bit louder", can we also say "Raise your voice a bit so that I can hear you".

    And what would be the opposite of this "Coukd you pleasr lower down your voice"?

    Please check your spelling before posting. You must know that 'Coukd' and 'pleasr' are wrong.

    Lower your voice.
    Speak more softly.
    Your voice is too loud.
    Speak more quietly.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
