слышать [SLY-shat'] (imperfective verb) – to hear

Говори громче, я тебя не слышу. = Speak louder, I don't hear you. (informal)

Вы слышали об этом актёре? = Have you heard of this actor? (formal)


Note the irregular conjugation in the Present: я слышу, ты слышишь, он слышит, мы слышим, вы слышите, они слышат.


Not to confuse with "слушать" = to listen.
