Vocabulary: hearing, listening
Our ears enable us to perceive noises, sounds, music, all the noises that can be heard (to hear, I heard, heard), without making any particular effort [= involuntary perception]... and those that you're making an effort to listen to (to listen to) [ = voluntary perception ] and teachers hope that you pay great attention to what they're saying! I'm sure you are!
1) Can you hear, or not?...
2) The different ways of "crying":
3) .... and the different ways of listening....
They are made to help you hear ( besides the above mentioned "hearing aid").
4) We are disturbed by a multitude of varied noises...
I've picked the verbs which are most frequently met in conversation and which can be very useful... There are many others but those need to be known by more advanced learners.
The vocabulary expressing metallic sounds is extremely varied: To rattle, to clang, to crash, to jangle, to jingle, to clunk, to rumble. You need a good dictionary to explain and choose the particular meaning of each verb that you'd like to use.
... and, of course, there are the sounds made by water...
Well, well ! That's a lot of difficult vocabulary ... I'm sorry ! You know, I've spared a lot of words which were not as used as those ones... Will you pardon me? Good luck anyway!
