Grammar: Hear

Nicol Ozbic has heard from her son almost every week. He is living in Canada, far away from her, but he's called every week.

She said to him 'You can go to Canada to learn English, but only if I hear from you every week. I don't want you to become a stranger.'

She enjoys his calls. For a while she was hearing all about his new life in Canada. It sounded very interesting and fun, but she knew he was just excited about living in a new place.

Now, she's heard all about his problems and complaints about life. He is getting used to Canada.
