I'm only staying in this college for a semester. It depends on the professors and how you pick them. Some may talk too fast or speak too low, but you need to speak up and tell them about it. They do care about your grades and how you are doing, but you're also responsible for your work. If you're really concern about your grades, then talk to your professor and s/he may try to arrange a way for you to make up your grades or boost it in a fair way.
