Usage notesModificar

In English and many other languages, listen and hear are two primary verbs relating to audial perception. Hearing represents, essentially, automatic or passive perception of sound, while listening represents -- generally -- intentional or purposeful use of the sense of hearing. A similar distinction exists between see and watch in English and other languages.
