Lesson Transcript

Today, we will take a look at a very useful phrase, I don't understand. It is very useful because many times you won't immediately understand what people are saying to you.
Let's break this phrase down. I is the person, in this case, yourself, don't is a contraction of do+not, and finally we have understand. Altogether, we have I don't understand.
Another way to express that you don't understand is asking someone what does this mean? This phrase comes in handy for many things, so it's a good one to remember. For example, if you get fined for something, you can ask the police officer, I don't understand, what does this mean? Chances that you get out of paying the fine are slim, but at least you've tried.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- I don't understand.
- What does this mean?
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!

Don't be afraid to say that you don't understand something, or ask what something means! Knowledge is power! :hachimaki:

Hello Senay,


The phrase "got it" or "get it" means 'understand.'


For example, "Have you got it?" or "Do you get it?" means the same as "Do you understand?"


I hope this makes sense and helps with your understanding.


Sincerely,

ร‰va

Hi Giorgia, lydia, and alexandar,


Thank you for posting. It's so nice to have you all here.


Just a little remark for you: 'What DOES this mean?' and 'I don't GET it.' (present tense).

Also, when being grateful we either say 'Thank you' or 'Thanks', but not "Thanks you"
