    Re: Hear myself

    If you're complaining about how loud it is somewhere, we say "I can't even hear myself speak". Actually, we usually say "I can't even hear myself think!"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Hear myself

    Why don't you use think as it is what people say? Speaking would be OK grammatically, but the version with think is a common way of complaining about the level of noise.
