    Default ears

    Which one is correct? What is the difference between ear and ears. We have two ears so it should be plural ?


    your ears will get use to listening to English . Listening to music is a great way to train your ears

    Default Re: ears

    When you mean "the ability to distinguish sound" or "appreciate types of music," idiomatically we refer to one's "ear."

    You play by ear when you don't use sheet music.
    You have an ear for talent when you can sense someone will be a star.
    You train your ear as you learn to hear something particular in music.
