why whisper?

Again I make the same observation. Students have the tendency to only "whisper" their answers when speaking. Why? Is this habit perhaps an extension of the kind of training kids are getting in the home?

I think teachers should draw the line between private speaking and public speaking. Maybe whispering may be allowed in private speaking but it is not acceptable for one to whisper one's answers in public speaking.

Self-confidence can be shown through one's voice. When one speaks loud and clear, the person would instantly come across as confident and one with authority.
