    Re: How To Express My Idea Without Your Misunderstood ?

    When you're talking to someone, try to watch their face to see if they understand. If you think they might not, try 'reformulating', which is saying the same thing in deifferent words. And ask them; if they are trying to understand you, then they should answer honestly. Don't be shy about asking this.
