    FEEL, HEAR, SEE, WATCH, LISTEN, NOTICE + somebody / something + infinitive

    Hello,

    1. I heard you become a very successful doctor.
    2. I heard you be a very successful doctor.

    3. I heard that boy become so naughty.
    4. I heard that boy be so naughty.

    I think number 1 and 3 are OK, but I don't know whether the rest are OK or not. Could you please check it out if they are correct?

    Thanks.

    Re: FEEL, HEAR, SEE, WATCH, LISTEN, NOTICE + somebody / something + infinitive

    You are confusing two different constructions. None of your sentences is correct.

    I heard you come in. - I was aware of the sounds you made as you came in.

    I heard (that) he became a doctor. - Somebody informed me that he became a doctor.
