Can I use this form? Are those sentences grammatically correct? I understand them perfectly but not sure about the grammar construction.

1- You can understand this subject better the more you read and listen.

2- The more you read and listen, you can understand this subject better.

The first example is correct:

You can understand this subject better the more you read and listen.

However the second is phrased as a sort of comparison - it doesn't sound right because there is no measure of understanding to compare with the increased amount of reading and listening.

I think it should be:

The more you read and listen, the better you will understand this subject.

..although I prefer:

The more you read and listen, the greater your understanding of this subject will be.
