    I have French as my second language. When people speak fast it can be a problem for me. I hope it just takes time and practice to overcome.

    If people are aware you are new to English, I am sure most will try to slow down for you, if you let them know. Some people are better than others about that type of thing. Also, how well they actually speak could be a factor as well as regional accents.

    Do not be embarrased.

    Hi, sonia,
    I'd advise watching films with subtitles. Take one and watch it over and over again. Besides you can transcribe recorded stories ( listen and write down sentence by sentence) and then compare with the transcript.
    Best wishes!

    I agree with this totally- I am a beginner student of a language now and often have to ask my teacher to repeat things a few times.
