Why native speakers can face difficulties?
Being native English speaker is perfect. Unless this is your only language. Please do not feel offended – you of have this tongue handicap. You probably speak fast, with dialect or slang, or you are using idioms that are meaningful in your origin but not elsewhere. There are many situations, where ESL speakers do understand face value of the word but will not get anything deeper or behind. I can help you to accommodate your communication to local track.
