what you have said is similar with what I have faced last time, dealing with that problem, I try to look for the solution from my teacher or my senior, but it does not work at all, then I try to change the concept of my thought related with listening, listening is not difficult, it is easy when I want to learn it, to the point, here are some technique how to improve your listening based on my experience :
1. Change your mindset that listening is difficult, it is totally easy
2. Start to listen simple English song and try to follow it, it is also possible for you to guess the contain of the songs, then check it by searching the lyrics
3. Do you like watching movie? it can help you, just look for the movie that has the subtitles on it, while you practice to listen you also add your vocabulary competence here.
in the following time, when you are ready just watch the movie that does not provides the subtitle
4. If you have smartphone, you can download listening application or game based on you willingness
ya that's all my tips, hopefully it will help you someday
