    I learned english for a long time but i cant seem to understand certain accents. I find it difficult to communicate with a native english speaker as they speak too fast and i can't pick up, and there are so many different accents! What can i do to improve my listening?

    That's fine though, 99.9% of brummies never say anything worth listening to.

    the most you can do is ask the english speakers to slow down. in time you'll be able to understand speech in english at a faster pace

    Depends how thick the accent is. It can be a little grating if really loud but they mean well.

    Oh they're more understandable, but they're equally if not more annoying.
