    I guess it's something like "to catch up/keep pace".

    By the way ;

    Did you heared before about this.....

    Have you ever heard anything about this before?

    As an example, if you and a friend decide to go on a bicycle ride one day, and you know that you ride a lot faster than your friend, you might say:

    "It's OK. Don't worry. We can go at your speed", meaning that you will ride slower than normal so that you are both going at the same speed (his speed).

    As Euncu said, your title needed amendment:

    Have you heard of this before?

    can you tell me what's the meaning of this phrase? and when we can use it?? You can use it when someone can only go slowly or, less likely, wishes to go faster than usual.

    You can say '(Did you hear)(Have you heard) about this before?'

    Thank you in advance

    It's "Now I understand".

    Re: Did you heared before about this.....

    It's wrong because a comma is not required! In the same way as:

    Now I'm going to get in the car.
    Now you can have your dinner.
    Now we can take the dog for a walk.
    Now I have your pen.

    You used the wrong tense. When you are saying that you have got the point of the responses, you use the present tense, as you normally would with "now" (although the present continuous and future tenses are possible in some contexts).

    So:

    Now I understand.
