If you're reading Henry IV Part 2, then you've probably already read Henry IV Part 1 so, Shakespeare's Elizabethan language should be getting a whole lot easier to manage by now (especially if you've also read Richard II, which is the first play in the tetralogy). You've also probably noticed that the story line is a heck of a lot easier to follow than the more complex plotlines in Part 1. So, you've got that going for you.
