If "hears" is incorrect, it should not be given as a hint.
I agree with you
"He hears".... Is that wrong?
The difference between "to hear" and "to listen" is exactly the same as between "sentire" and "ascoltare".
Lui sente = he hears
Lui ascolta = he listens
Ah, grazie! In that case, the hover hint is wrong, since it lists "hears".
I always use the one at the top of the hover or check a diccionary with every new verb.
I don't know why people neg questions. It's not even a bad one.
I thought sentire means to listen and ascoltare to hear
