Is it まだ慣れてる?

慣れてる means "to be used to something" but if I add まだ does this make clear that I mean "am still getting used to" a new job, a new country, etc, as a process ongoing now. I know that Japanese doesn't have the same sense of present progressive as English so maybe this is not something Japanese people would normally say?

The most common and natural-sounding way to say that would be:

「~~に[慣]{な}れてきている」 using 「くる」 as a subsidiary verb.

Also common would be:

「~~に慣れ[始]{はじ}めたところです」

We do not say 「まだ慣れてる」 to mean anything. It just makes no sense, sorry to say.

We, however, say 「まだ慣れていない」 in the negative form to mean "to be not used to ~~ yet".

  • Don't understand your notation for 「に慣れ[始]{はじ}めたところです。」 does [] just mark kanji? So Xに慣れ始めたところです means "I just started getting used to doing X" – Paul Cunningham Feb 28 '16 at 3:50
  • Also, 慣れてきた means "I got used to" and 慣れてきます means "getting used to" or "will get used to" is it correct? – Paul Cunningham Feb 28 '16 at 4:01
  • @PaulCunningham Aren't you looking at this page with mobile app? We have furigana feature but they don't work on the official app. Try to open it in your browser. – broccoli forest Feb 28 '16 at 6:52
