Three words you need to know, if you don't want your speaker to think he/she is "talking to a brick wall", are LISTEN, UNDERSTAND and RESPOND! We need good listening skills, either in English or in our own language, because they lead to good communication which requires more than just mouthing off a few words.
The English language is not only used by American, British or Australian people but it is world-widely used by millions of people from different countries and cultures. Let's learn English naturally by listening to speakers from all over the world!
And remember...listening takes practice!
