In this English vocabulary lesson, learn how to use "understandable" and "understand".

"Understandable" and "understand' don't have the same meaning.

We don't use "understandable" to say that you "understand" information.

For example, if I explain the present perfect verb tense and you understand my explanation you can't say "that's understandable". You can only say "I understand".

So when can you use "understandable". You can use "understandable" to say that you understand the reason behind someone's actions or decisions.

For example, if your coworker is grieving the death of a loved one and is therefore having a difficult time concentrating at work, you can say "that's understandable". You can use this to say you understand WHY he's having a difficult time concentrating. You understand the reason behind his actions and decisions.

Remember, "understandable" isn't used to say you "understand" information.

Learn more on how to use "understandable" and "understand" in this lesson and then practice your own examples at the end.
