    WElcome to the forums.

    Really that is too general a question. Each word is fine to use. Do you have any concerns about using them?

    To listen = to want to hear (it implies paying attention).

    Begin and start are in many contexts interchangeable, as Anglika said. I feel that begin is more formal. In some situations you had better use "start" instead of "begin".
    "Start engine". "Begin engine" does not work here.
    "Start a new job". "Begin" might work but "start works somehow better.
    "Start doing it!!!"
    "Begin doing it!!!" sounds awkward to me.

    More context is needed here. Try to have a look at the link below first and come back if you are still confused.
