Do you understand?

From Teflpedia

Do you understand? (/du:ju:wʌndə'stænd/) is a question asked often by teachers to students to check understanding.[1]

It's generally not a good question to ask because (1) the student might not understand but reply "yes" to save face, (2) the student might not understand but reply "yes" because they think they understand.

So, it's usually better to ask proper CCQs or ICQs to check they understand!
