>you understand American English more easily than British English
No, I haven't, I'm still in the process of learning. Have I made good progress? Definitely, yes. Am I capable of speaking it at least quarter as good as a native speaker? The answer is: no. Don't be misled by the first impression I made, I'm still speaking it like a retard in real life (to be honest on the internet too), taking long pauses to think what to say next, remember some word, expression, etc.
>the predominant nationality of the shows you've been watching
Different ones, but mostly American tv shows, not only tv shows, I've been using movies as a training material as well. And even though it's way easier to catch what Americans say I still find it difficult to understand a lot of stuff. By the way, I watch everything with English subtitles. As I said, it's never easy to learn a foreign language.
I think it wouldn't be such a problem if I spent more time speaking to people in real life instead of using the internet most of the time, I would learn how to understand what the British say, I would get used to the way you guys speak. I sure could learn how to express my thoughts in a better way faster, but social interaction with others has always been one of my serious problems.
