Hi,
Please explain to me " a little bit". Is it necessary to write like that or does it have to separate from each other?
1. He is a little bit deaf in his left ear, but if you speak clearly he will hear what you say.
2. He is a little deaf in his left ear, but if you speak clearly he will hear what you say.
3. He is a bit deaf in his left ear, but if you speak clearly he will hear what you say.
Thanks a lot.

    Hi Mimi

    I agree with Typo. All three are commonly used expressions. The term 'hard of hearing' is more precise, and the use of 'hearing impaired' is a more formal way of describing the same condition. We can also say that a person 'suffers hearing loss.'

    Thank you, Bil and Typo.
    So, I can use all of them without hesitation.
    Thanks.
