Try to write down the words you don't understand clearly. Look them up later. Learn the correct spelling and pronunciation. Watch english movies. Try to ignore the subtitles (/captions). Replay difficult scenes again and again. Make notes of new expressions. Listen again.

first step : please change your name from" Blue Sadness" to "Blue Happiness".This suits you better. Second Step: When in the lecture hall, close all the books etc, and tell yourself that you will listen to the lecture only , no other thoughts. keep telling afew times, ie., self hypnosis, condition your mind to lesten what is being told. Third step: keep repeating the second step. 4th step: keep repeating the 3rd step . And so on ...................

Hello, Listening constantly to the language you are learning will improve that skill obviously. What counts is how you listen , it has got to be attentively while concentrating .Effective listening is required to get the best results in shorter times. Means of listening as stated are listening to any media, Tv ,etc listening to the lecturer in the class. The best thing is trying to converse with native speakers, that interactive method of listening allows you to instantly repeat words you just heard and makes it easier to learn and memorize new vocabulary . Good luck :)

American English sounds very different from British English, besides the vocabular discrepancies between Am and Br English, it would take some time for you to concentrate on either Am or Br sound (not both), and then you could get used to its pronunciation gradually.
