    Question "hear" or "listen to"?

    Hello,
    In Vienamese, the two verbs "hear" and "listen to" have a similar meaning. Then I want to ask when we should use "hear" and when we should use "listen to".
    Thank you.

    When you listen to someone or something you concentrate on it and don't do anything else. When you hear someone or something you don't concentrate on it. You can watch TV and hear the noise the children are making while playing football.
