Understanding Questions

“I am sorry, but I just don’t understand what you mean. Please would you explain that again?”

“I really have read the question twice, look I have even underlined the key words, but I still don’t understand.”

“Yes I do know what all the words mean. I just don’t know what I am supposed to be looking for.”

“Yes, I really do want to know how to answer the question. I am not being difficult.”

“I do understand that I have done similar questions in the past, I know that I managed them with help, but I don’t know what to do.”

“I actually did go to the dictionary to look up that word – look the page is open.”

“I know you have told me in the past to draw a picture or make sketch – but I don’t see how that will help in this case.”

“Yes, I did read the question very slowly. You have mentioned that before. I know that sometime I read too quickly – but in this case I have read the question slowly.

“Thank you for reading the question to me. It makes a lot more sense.”
