Learners of English sometimes say 'l don't listen to English on the radio because it's too fast and I can't make head nor tail of it.
But think about that. When you were a few months old, learning your own language from scratch, did you understand it all? No! But you listened and learned. Then you learned to speak and read and write. But listening came first. So even if you don't feel confident, have a go at it.
