I'm glad I'm not alone with that particular problem. Often, because I can have quite a bit of difficulty deciphering what is said, I watch movies with the subtitles on. It's not because I can't HEAR what's being said; my hearing is fairly keen and I can even be driven batty by the annoying hum of a TV being on without it playing any sound. It's because I often just can't decipher it, either because of too much background noise or too heavy of accents.

As an interesting sidenote, when speaking to someone with a different language, I can usually repeat back what he or she has said to me with the exact tone and pitch, imitating the accent perfectly. My brain is weird...
