    When you can't hear in one of your ear's.

    When you can't hear in one of your ear's you can't figure it out that how loud or quiet you are speaking.

    Please check.

    I would change figure it out to figure out. Also, if you can hear in one ear, won't you have some idea of how loudly you are speaking?

    I missed that extraneous "it" on first reading. Having had the misfortune to be completely deaf in one ear for a couple of weeks last year, I can confirm that I honestly couldn't tell how loudly I was speaking. I knew I was speaking aloud but I had to keep asking people if I was shouting.
