Listening comprehension

I understand the news casters on TV24 but I am having a difficult time understanding the extremely fast speakers on your B1 exercise, even though I am looking at the printed exercise while I listen to the recording.  Is it possible for you to use speakers who are more articulate?

The speed is lower in exercises for levels A0-B1, I believe. From there on, I believe, it is normal everyday speaking. The French have a tendency to rush their speech. But rest assured, over time, your listening comprehension will improve. It has so for me and countless others. Don't let your initial frustration get the better of you.
