    Hear it.

    Dear teachers,
    Could you tell me whether it is possible to 'hear a pop group' or I can only 'listen to it'?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, you can hear a pop group. You can hear something without actually listening to it, also you can listen without hearing.

    Re: Hear it.

    Have you ever heard a pop band called Blondie?
    Have you ever listened to any album of Blondie?

    I guess you can see the difference.

    Hi!

    hear - słyszeć w ogóle
    listen to - słuchać z uwagą czegoś, kogoś.
