What is the main difference between tande and koute? And why will you choose one over the other?

tande (to hear) → to perceive a sound
koute (to listen) → to give attention, to give one's ears to a sound

In Creole, sometimes, "tande" means the same as "koute".
These sentences, you will hear often, are examples:

1.  Tande sa m'ap di w.
      Hear me out!
      Listen to what I'm telling you

2. Timoun madanm sa a pa konn tande.
     This lady's kids don't know how to listen.
