Hi,
This advice is really useful and important to know and practice in order to understand speaking English properly.
Why this speech is so easy and clear to understand and others are so hard and difficult?

Thanks and happy day!

Hi Ana

I'm glad you find it useful.
As for your question, it depends on how careful or careless the speaker is, on their accent, the regional variety they use... sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's hard.
One thing is clear: if you expose yourself frequently to spoken English in a variety of accents, you're bound to improve.
Thanks for your interest!
