I am  a beginner here and have been feeding to flightradar24 and flightaware, but am now interested also in hearing the pilots.

I have liveatc,  but I cant for the life of me hear what they say. Is it a training thing or am I doing something wrong? I have tried multiple  airports
but to be honest I hear they speak enlgish, but thats about it.

Hey! Welcome to the Liveatc club! So, let's make sure whats going on: is it that you can gear them speaking but you don't understand what they are saying?  Or you can't hear anyone talking?

Hi. Great with such a quick response.

I hear they speak and I hear they speak English, but the talk is very "blurry" if you understand what I mean.. So I dOnt understand because the voices are so blurry...

"Aviation-speak" is a language all by itself! It takes getting used to.  If you've never listened to ATC before it can definitely be hard to understand. So, i guess the question is, is it hard to understand at all or can you hear it but you don't kno what it means?
