Never mind if you don't understand or you are slow at doing it, you have to, so to say, get mechanical to a certain point until you are totally used to it. I recommend online courses and discussions, which can improve your understanding of language overall. Chinese is one of the hardest languages to learn, so I think that you won't have any problems in comprehending English. Good luck :)
