For instance if someone tell me something like "I had a bad day then I am tired and bored etc..." I would like to answer something which means that "okai I can imagine" meaning okai I can understand what you are feeling now.

In my native language which is French we use to say "I can imagine" but I am not sure about English.


  • I would say "OK, I can imagine that." OK is the standard abbreviation. "that" is not mandatory but is better grammar as it points back to the previous statement.

  • "Oh, yeah, I understand." "Oh yeah, I feel you." "Oh yeah, I'm sure." And, "Oh, yeah, I can imagine," is fine :). We say it in English as well. Commented Mar 9, 2017 at 8:43
  • Or "Of course, anyone would [be/feel the same if he/she were you]." Commented Apr 22, 2017 at 16:45

I can imagine that.

or (cool, but probably not best English - it was a favorite of a former colleague):

I feel you.

or even:

I know, I've been there too.
