    [American English Short Drama] How much do you understand in this video?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsB-1lds9K8


    I can only understand 60%.
    What do I have to do to improve my listening skills? How much in this video do you understand?

    Profanity warning to any who's bothered by the f-bomb.

    Well they're speaking pretty rapidly since they're arguing, and normal inflections are out the window since they're yelling at each other. Plus there's a lot of profanity and slang in there as well, so 60% isn't too bad for this particular clip. Even though as a native speaker I caught all of what they said, I did have to give it my full attention due to the pacing and yelling.

    I had no trouble understanding every word in the first minute. I stopped there.
    I am not a teacher.
