Simple Observation

Just a simple observation. An action I see, or rather hear, daily from both sides of the telephone.

Why is it when the person who is speaking to someone who English is not the primary language... or when the person who is speaking English as a second or third language...

... almost always each end talks much louder than normal. Does the speaker really believe the listener will understand better if the volume is raised?
