Learning to hear happens over time
Your brain will need time to interpret all the new sounds, this can take a while.
After you start hearing with your new device, you will need to practice listening and speaking as much as possible.
Practice at home
The more you practice, the better. This means enlisting the help of family and friends to talk and listen more and more.
You can also listen to audio books or podcasts or read along with someone from a book — these are all ways to improve your hearing.
