What does it mean to say I understand?
I bet you are a bit like me and you tend to say “I understand” to someone simply to acknowledge that you heard them so you can say what you want to say. Most people default to this unhelpful use of acknowledgement because it feels like you are communicating understanding as a listener.
Is it OK to say understand?
On the face of it, the statement “I understand” is the perfect expression of empathy. Unlike Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen’s character in the sitcom), we usually mean it. We are sincere when we say it, so for me to suggest that ‘I understand’ is arrogant may sound insulting. But think of it this way.

What to say instead of I understand how you feel?
I’m sorry you’re going through this. “I’m sorry you’re going through this” lets your loved one know that you understand the situation is difficult. At the same time, it doesn’t sound like you assume you know how they feel. “I’m sorry you’re going through this” is also a great alternative to “I’m sorry for your loss.”
Can you reply understood?
You might be used to replying “understood “, but that is about as normal to English speakers as “got it”. There’s many ways of saying that you understand an explanation, but for most of us they begin “I ” – “I understand”, “I see”, ‘I’ve got that”, “I get it”, “I see what you mean” are examples.

Is it rude to say See?
Rule of thumb: if you ask a stranger a question and they answer it, say “thank you.” You can say, ” I see. Thank you”, but not just “I see.” Saying “I see” by itself is basically like saying, “oh, okay.” If it’s one of your friends, you probably don’t necessarily have to worry too much about the “thank you.”
How do you say I don’t know in a professional way?
Try one of these instead:
- I’m not sure, but I’ll find out and let you know.
- I’ll find out.
- I’ll look into it and get back to you with what I find.
- That’s a good question and I want to get you the right information. Let me get back to you by end-of-day.
