Listening to high level vocabulary in another language is not an easy task. If you want to improve your understanding of business English you need to practice listening to a lot of that. Here are some things you need to do.
1. Make sure that your vocabulary is good enough. There are a lot of advanced concepts and if you do not understand them, spending a lot of time listening will not help you at all. You need to learn the majority of common vocabulary words used in business to even have a chance.
2. Once your understanding is good enough, watch business news on TV. Listen to the hosts. They use a lot of buzz words all the time. If you are already familiar with these terms, it will be a lot easier to improve your listening. 30 minutes a day is a lot if you are consistent.
3. Practice talking about business with someone who is interested and educated in the subject. Ask them to speak at their regular speed and stop them when you have a question. If you level is too low, do not do this activity for too long because it is a burden on the other person. Make sure you are learning on your own as well as listening.
4. Read the business section of the newspaper. This is one way to get used to the kinds of language that is commonly used. The business newspaper and what is said on business TV programs like CNBC is quite similar.
