Asking or requesting to say again

Method of expressing the lack of understanding : English conversation

You can ask or request to repeat the last said words in a conversation, when you don’t understand or you couldn’t hear properly.

Here are some easy ways.


  • Pardon?
  • Pardon me?
  • Beg your pardon!
  • I beg your pardon!
  • Sorry?
  • I’m sorry. I don’t understand what you just said.
  • Excuse me?
  • What did you say?
  • What was that?
  • Say what?
  • Come again?
  • Say again?
  • Pass that by me again?
  • I simply don’t catch what you’re saying.
  • I’m afraid I don’t follow.
  • I’m not clear about what you mean.
  • I’m unclear about what you mean.

Pardon me, the correct spelling for "here" in the last part of your sentence "...or you couldn’t here properly." should be "hear".



Two for the price of one. ;->
