Why do you need to learn about the cockney accent?

Yes, but when it comes to listening. I can't understand.

Why do you need to learn about the cockney accent?

because I don't understand people from east end of London when they speak.

Also, I need one for northern accent too. Local accents are pretty hard to comprehend.

Post a link to one such video, and tell us which parts you can't understand.

It was on TV and I don't have a DVR.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

That can improve if you keep trying. Do it as much and often as possible. You could try this film https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cockneys_vs_Zombies and this programme https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Only_Fools_and_Horses
