    Re: is this correct expression

    'Hear me good/well' doesn't sound natural to me.

    I'm more used to:

    Do your hear me?
    Do you hear me clearly?

    not a teacher

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning.

    I thought that you would like to know this:

    In American slang, sometimes an angry person will say, "Listen, and listen good."

    (a) It means something like: I am going to tell you something (usually an order). Listen carefully to what I say. Then DO IT!!!!!

    Have a nice day!
