What do you do when you don't understand what someone is saying? 

What do you do when they don't understand you?

Hi Julia,


It's better to say "Naintindihan ko" to say that you have understood. Salamat! Keep up the good work!

Hi Jordan!


Good question :) there's a slight difference between the two. The first statement "hindi ko maintindihan" means that you can't understand the particular thing the other person is trying to convey. The second statement "hindi ako nakakaintindi" means that you are unable to understand or incapable of understanding.


Hope this helps!

Salamat sa iyong tanong!

Hi!


Just curious is there a difference between "hindi ko maintindihan" and "hindi ako nakakaintindi"?


Thank you

Hi killahgold and Sarah!


Thank you for helping Sarah out! You're right that naintindihan is past while maintindihan is in present tense.


Although, Sarah asked about the word naiintindihan (with 2 i's). So in that case, naiintindihan means that you are currently in the state of understanding. Maintindihan, on the other hand can mean the potential to understand - can understand.


No need to be confused though since you can use both hindi ko naiintindhihan (don't understand) and hindi ko maintindihan (can't understand) to say the same.


Salamat!

Sara,


The difference between the two is past/present tense. (Na)intindihan means understood (past tense) while (Ma)intindihan means understand (present tense)

Hi!

I was just wondering..

you say that "hindi ko maintindihan" is the correct way of saying it, but i came across a Filipino phrasebook at the bookstore the other day, and in it,it says that you're supposed to say "hindi ko naiintindihan" so now i'm just very confused as I don't know which one's accurate, or is it possible to use both?


thank you :)
