We all hear many things! But listening is really paying attention & understanding what someone is saying to you! So that you can respond with your best answer first! Instead of saying huh? Or excuse me? I'm sorry could you repete that? ect....
Ok well hearing is like you can hear it but your not exactly listening, like your zoned out. But with listening your paying attention and actually understanding it. Kinda like me and my teacher. I hear her but I'm zoned out
I do. The difference is that hearing is where sound waves flow in and out of your ears and listening is where your teaching a class and you need to listen for notes passing or a whisper and giggle, then you give them detention. Do not call me cruel for that...

It has been said that hearing simply happens (physiological). Listening, however, is something you consciously choose to do. Listening requires concentration so that your brain processes meaning from words and sentences. Listening leads to learning. Most people tend to be "hard of listening" rather than "hard of hearing."
hearing means like ACCIDENTLY listening , like , u don't have a particular purpose of paying attention to what others say, u just heard it, e.g. u are doing some work and u hear someone talking to others but not u, you are in your class and hear some noise outside the class, but you actually are listening to your teacher paying full attention to her. but listening is different as it suggests of being fully concentrated to what others say TO YOU .... :)
Hearing is what you can hear with your ears but listening is about you what u listen , for example listen to your heart listen to what your mom says , its not like your mom is talking so listen to her its hearing , hear what she says i hope it helps x_x
"Do you think there is a difference between hearing and listening? You are right, there is! Hearing is simply the act of perceiving sound by the ear. If you are not hearing-impaired, hearing simply happens. Listening, however, is something you consciously choose to do. Listening requires concentration so that your brain processes meaning from words and sentences. Listening leads to learning.
Most people tend to be 'hard of listening' rather than 'hard of hearing.'"
Hearing/involuntary. Listening/voluntary. On this point... listening doesn't mean having an answer, advice or an opinion ready at listening's end (unless you are asked). Sometimes listening means just that. Listening. This is what it means to be a "good" listener.
Hearing-the act of the ears processing noise. Listening-The act of the heart and mind devoting themselves to someone else for a time and hearing what they say, caring about what they say, and understanding what they say with a Godly Love.
Well, I believe the difference is hearing is something you born or not born with. You can't ignore hearing it's like parents yelling at you. You may have a disability where you can't hear. Listening is your choice, some people tune others out by doing things to keep them busy until they quit talking.

Hear is to to sense sounds through your ears while listen is to pay attention so that you can hear some thing with your heart and Mind with focus also using your big fat ears the synonyms of listen is contemplating
hearing is merely a bodily function where you process sounds that you hear. listening is when you pay attention to those sounds, and if those sounds are words, then you actually think about them and normally respond in some form of comprehensible manner.
when you're hearing something it doesn't really mean you're getting the catch of something or actually cautiously keeping it in mind.... kind of like yeah... i'm hearing something but it doesn't necessarily mean that you know what the words are... like oh... i hear some whispering... unlike hearing listening is when you can actually hear the words without saying like.... oh... i can hear something... you're listening to the actual words or knowing what the words are instead of listening to sounds or whispering or whatever.
