I have do not speak Chinese and need to know what the verb (as an instruction) "repeat" means. I'd like to use it when asking someone to repeat what I say just after me. I wish to use the verb "repeat" as it is to make it as simple as possible. Thanks in advance.. Cheers.
"Repeat" in Chinese is '重复'(repeat an action) or '复述'(repeat a speech)
However, if you just say "复述", It would sound too blunt. To be polite, you could say: "请复述(一次)" - "please repeat (once)"
Please notice, the term "复述" is very literary. The colloquial way to say "please repeat" is "请跟着再说一遍" (please follow and repeat/ please repeat it)
If you want to say: "please repeat after me" you can say "请跟着我再说一遍" (please follow me and repeat) or 请复述我說的词句/字句" (Please repeat the words/ word I say)
If you want to say: "please repeat this words" you can say "请复述这个词句/字句" (please repeat this words/word)
