听不懂

The really young students don't understand yet that I don't speak Chinese. I must seem like an idiot to them sometimes.

Yesterday a class of five-year-olds was speaking Chinese. Sharon, the Eastern teacher, stopped them and, in Chinese, said, "{When you speak Chinese, Tim Teacher doesn't understand you.}"

In English, not thinking about what I was saying, I said, "Yeah, Sharon's right: I don't understand you."
