I work in a hospital & take patients to their examination room.

I will ask them to: "Please follow me".

What is the correct (formal) way to say in Spanish: "Please follow me".

Muchas gracious, judy

The "por favor" is somewhat superflous as the Spanish don't use words like "please" and "thank you" (also sorry/excuse me etc.) as much as English speakers. This is because using the usted form as in "sigame" is the Spanish way of showing politeness and deference

"Por favor sígame" is the easiest way, I believe and quite proper... anybody else? raspberry

  • Not sure if "venga conmigo" is also appropriate? With the por favor, of course! - cristalino Mar 1, 2011
