    increasing/decreasing the volume

    hi,

    how to say that in a very informal but correct way?

    "to put the volume up/down" ?

    thanks,
    jc

    Re: increasing/decreasing the volume

    Turn up the volume, please.
    Turn it up, please.

    The same expressions for "down."

    "Please" can be either at the beginning or end of the sentence:
    Please turn it up.
    Turn it up, please.

    "Put the volume up/down" would not be correct.
