- I don’t quite understand you.
- I don’t understand you very well.
- I don’t really understand what you mean.
- I don’t understand a single word of it.
- What I don’t understand is how can we get a result out of this experience?
- I don’t follow you.
- I don’t get it!
- I’m completely lost!
- I’m totally confused!
- I am a little bit puzzled.
- I’m afraid it’s beyong my understanding!

- Can you start again please, it was too quick.
- Can you repeat please?
