Hi there! During this lesson we'regoing to look at the differences between the words, Hear and Listen
The word Hear is used when a noise, a sound, or music enters our ears and we are able to hear it in an involuntary way.
For example, I can hear the phone ringing, or Could you speak a bit louder because I can't hear you?
Then the word Listen is used when we use our ears to pay attention to a noise, a sound, or music in a voluntary way.
For example, I only listen to the radio when I'm in my car, or: I am listening, but I can't hear you very well.
Note that when we talk about using our ears to concentrate on a sound, we need to add the word: to...I listen to music, I listen to the radio.
And that's the end of this lesson!
Now you can see if you've understood the video, and do the test on GoSpeakEnglish. You can also watch many other English video lessons on GoSpeakEnglish.
Thanks, and I hope to see you again soon!
