My Wha’s…?

I wonder… why do some professors choose to take attendance and other choose not to?

I wonder why people believe if you speak louder and slower to someone from another country or region,  they will understand you.  Do they think it’s the volume or speed of their voice that’s affecting their communication, not the words that they are using?
