Repeating after sb. How do you express "to repeat (after sb.)" in Chinese? I mean the situation when A says something and B "answers" by repeating the words that A just said, like a parrot.

We need to be careful about the nuances of different languages here. 1. repeat after me This means "Say again what I have just said in the way I said it in order to learn it". It is a conscious instruction. In Chinese, it is "我每说一句,你照样跟着说一句,把这个学会。" This applies to singing as well. The verb is 唱. Replace 说 with 唱. 2. He just repeats what I say, like a parrot. 他像鹦鹉学舌, 我说什么,他就说什么。 3."Stop repeating everything I say." 别学我说话。 This is not neutral at all, just as the English original is not neutral. The English original is quite rude and peremptory (unless when you are playing with a close friend or a lover).
