Can you hear me now?

While skyping recently I ran across a simple misunderstanding. If you're checking if someone can hear you or not, make sure to distinguish between these two:

I can hear you.
Hear me (listen to what I'm saying).

안 들려.
I can't hear you.
안 들어.*
I'm not listening to you. *(not common at all)

Make you you say what you mean to say to loved ones. Definitely a piece of Korean Grammar You Should Already Know. 다시 한번 미안해 여보.
