    I can't keep up with

    Hi,
    I'd like to know if the sentences "I can't keep up with what you are saying" and " I'm not following what you are saying" have the same meaning, and if they can be interpreted as the speaker is not being understood or he is speaking too fast.

    Re: I can't keep up with

    "Can't keep up" implies an ability to understand, but a problem with the speed.

    "Not following you" does not say anything about speed, but about comprehension. If you say you're "not following me," I would try to re-phrase not slow down.
