  • Hey guys it's Shane from English Understood here.

  • When we use the present simple tense, we normally use it to talk about facts or to talk about habits or routines.

  • Do you get me? Do you get me?

  • Huh!? What does that mean? Do you get me?

  • Guys, 'Do you get me?' means 'Do you understand me?'

  • It's a very casual way to ask someone do they understand you.

  • And when a native speaker says it really fast, it sounds like this.

  • Djyuh get me? Djyuh get me?

  • We don't say 'do you'. We say 'djyuh'.

  • Djyuh get me? Djyuh get me?

  • Now you try. Djyuh get me?

  • So if I say, 'Do you think he got me?', what do you think that means?

  • That means 'Do you think he understood me?' in the past

  • because I changed 'get' to 'got'.

  • So this is a really really good phrase to use to ask someone do they understand you.

  • So try it with your friends and if they don't understand, you can teach them.
