It’s always difficult when I am listening to native speakers. Can you give me some advice?

@carlasss Continue being around them and listen to every word they say carefully after a time it will become a norm and you will catch on easily. Also you should read more that will definitely help.

Have a nice day.

Hi! You should listen to the songs and watch the films. Of course, if you had an opportunity to talk with native speakers then it's better to communicate with them more And don't afraid to ask them to repeat what they said. It helped me a lot and there wasn't a person who refused me. Good luck!

Find friend from USA/UK (depends on what English you are learning) and talk with them in Skype (I talk with people from different countries for a year) This will help you a lot. Also, listen to radio stations (For instance - BBC) and watch TV programmes (Also BBC) That's what helped me a lot to pass IELTS :P

Practice, practice, practice. Also, you can try online English courses, usually, they offer trial options for free.

If you are around them a lot you will eventually learn what they are saying, you can also ask them to slow down, no shame in it. Or you can try to learn the language.

I'm a fast talker from the Southern State of Georgia (USA). Had a college roommate from Ohio who could barely understand me because I spoke so fast. I was never offended by being asked to slow down or repeat myself. And I have the same problem understanding some British, Scottish, Irish, and Austrailian dialects in movies and such. Ask them to slow down. Ask them to repeat themselves. Don't be afraid to ask them to explain what something means. The more you listen and converse, the better you'll get. :)

play English games with dictionary next to you. Listen to a story-like hip hop songs like Eminem lyrics video (this is how i first started to understand fast spoken english).

well this is how i learnt english. school didnt do nothing to help lol. games.. games and music lyrics. I refer eminem or tupac or similar artist because their rap song are really long and detailed with a bit of streets casual foundation (meaning you wont sound stuck-up formal english like they taught you at school and people are more comfortable with a casual english).

finally you gotta have a.. passion for learning the language (not giving up attitude) . i meant i really wanted to learn english because i knew english is kinda the world mediator in terms of communication, also cuz games. good games are in english lol.
