Since I'm not used to listening to British accented English, it is pretty hard for me to understand what he says. I sometimes get lost his conversations.
In my case, I have some really really good American friends, and I enjoy chatting with them on Skype every day. Therefore, I've already gotten used to listening to American accented English.
However, I'm curious about British accented English recently. I think I've been influenced by my British friend. When we chat, he always explains me about his country, culture, history or other stuff. As you know England has long history, so their culture is pretty complicated. That's why his stories are always attractive for me.
While I'm looking at the websites or YouTube videos that he sends me, I love thinking about his country.
To tell you the truth, I can understand what he says perfectly. Therefore, I would love to improve my hearing skill more and more. I really would like to be able to understand what he says more. I want to understand both American accented English and British English. Therefore, I'm going to listen to British English more from now on.
I also have another plan to conquer British English. In my case, I'm not good at reading British English. Although I've wanted to read " Harry Potter" series in English since I've started to study English, I've been hesitating to read. However, if I avoided to read British English, I've never been able to read them. Therefore, I want to try to read " Harry Potter" series, and I want to get used to British English more.
