    I am an Indonesian, and now I've been working for 3 weeks
    in an Indian company. Of course my boss is Indian
    (a 40 years old man from India).

    All communication is in English.
    I have problem to understand what he say,
    because he talk in Indian accent, and since my english is not good enough. Listening problem :(

    Can someone help me to improve my listening skill?
    Is there any website that I can download some conversation mp3s,
    especially in Indian accent?

    Please. someone from India help me :(

    You can watch Indian tv channels that are in English and use subtitles to practice or get him to send you emails.

    Accents always cause problems. Sorry you are in this position. Hopefully someone will hook you up with some resources to get better at it.

    Yeah, at least i am not alone :)

    There is no Indian tv channel in Indonesia :)
    But some local tvs play Indian movies a lot.
    Unfortunately, they all are dubbed to Indonesian language.

    Really confusing me sir :)

    Thank you, btw i found some conversation in youtube :D

    You say your English is not good enough. Then, Indian English or American English, what makes the difference?

    Thank you. I will really buy the dvd.

    Big difference. I used to listen or watch american movies.
    I can understand 70% - 80% what they say, without reading sub titles.
    Listening to my boss saying, I understand only 20% - 30%.

    Thank you, I am watching now.

    You could always buy hosting at a budget hosting company then ring their call center over and over again until you can understand them?

    Yeah...you are right...and may be you don't know a fact that when we get high we even pronounce the works in a certain way that no body can even think of :D

    P.S : Start listening to Indian News channels as said above!!
