    What part of it don't you understand?

    Would you understand it if it said 'Have they still not got you an assistant yet?'

    Not really. Does "They haven't given you an assistant yet" mean?

    Re: They still haven't gotten you an assistant yet?

    In the sentence above "get" =(means) "give" ?

    so we could say "They still haven't given you an assistant yet?" ?

    Re: They still haven't gotten you an assistant yet?

    I take 'get someone an assistant' to mean 'find someone an assistant', but I am not a teacher.

    Do you know what an assistant is?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
