305 Come With Me

If someone asks you to follow them, would you be nervous or excited? ShaoLan tells the story of the sense of dread she would feel when a teacher at school asked her to “come with me” because it usually meant she was in trouble! Jesse Edbrooke tells the story of how his friend in Taiwan used part of this same phrase to challenge him to a table-tennis match! ShaoLan and Jesse then continue to take the phrase apart and show how the components can be rearranged and mixed with a few other words to enable you to use in a whole host of different situations, including “learn Chinese with me!”

The way to say “follow me” or “to come with me” in Chinese, is 跟我來/跟我来. The first word 跟 means “to follow with,” the second one 我 is “me” and the final character 來/来 is “come,” “to come and follow me with” 跟我來/跟我来!
