shitte imasu vs. shite imasu.

Dillon--13

Can someone please tell me the difference between "shitte imasu" and "shite imasu"?

2679

shitte is the "te" form of the verb shiru (=to know). shite is the "te" form of the verb suru (=to do). => shitte imasu = I know (polite), shite imasu = I do/I am doing (polite)

Hi Dillion, Just to add to コッドさん's answers, written in Japanese they look like this: 知(し)る,"shiru", to know する,"suru", to do 知ってる and する are "te" form of those two different verbs.
