Hearing but not listening

I have been listening to French almost everyday now since I got back from Montreal. But it seems I'm stuck on that point where I'm hearing the words but not registering its meaning. I guess I could say, Quand j'entends français, je comprends de certains mots mais je ne comprends pas le contexte. I'm used to hearing the Quebecois accent but it will take a lot more time before I can start putting sentences together. Right now, I suppose I'm developing my vocabulary - with the exception that my French-English dictionary doesn't contain a lot of the words that I have to look up. That's probably because it's a 1992 edition :)
