Hello! To make sure you understood correctly, you can also say: "I want to see if I understood well: ..." ”Let me see if I understood this correctly” ”Correct me if I`m wrong" "Let me get this straight" (Usually, in a conversation, after these phrases, people say what they understood from the other person using different words.) I hope this helps! :)

Both would get you there, though the second is better to my ear. If what you have heard is long, you could say (paraphrasing): 'Let me make sure I understand....you want me to...' for example.
