How do you say

"I think I understand what you mean" in Japanese. I have started speaking to a native Japanese speaker, and I want to be able to assure them that I'm getting what they mean. Also, how would you express that you feel just as nervous and unsure to someone. Like how would you say "I feel embarrassed and unsure about my Japanese, so don't worry about your English. We are both learning, and this is just part of the process." Something along those lines. A simple way to express that thought.

For learning: Japanese
Base language: English
