    Hi,

    I'm learning Japanese with Rosetta Stone but i'm stuck with a word and I can't find a good notice from it. The word is 'shite'.

    An example:
    "Isha wa nani o shite imasuka."
    I think it's like:
    "what does the doctor do?" But I can't put the 'shite' in the sentence.
    What does it means?

    Thanks!

    In general, "What is the doctor doing?" would be a better translation. shite is the te form of suru.

    ~te iru was discussed in another recent thread.
