    I feel like/thought I heard ...

    Hello,

    A non-native ESL teacher says that Sentence 1 is wrong and should be Sentence 2, the reason being that in Sentence 1, there are too many sense verbs.

    1. I feel (like) I heard his footsteps.
    2. I thought I heard his footsteps.

    Should I accept their correction?

    Yes, but I don't know whether I accept the rationale.
    I am not a teacher.
