How would you write this in Japanese:  Please speak to me.

Thanks.

こんにちは (Konnichiwa) ClaudiaR-sc5G,

Thanks for your question.

Literally, you would say はなして ください (Hanashite kudasai) “please talk,” or, if you wanted to be explicit that you wanted the person to talk to YOU, you would say わたし に はなして ください (Watashi ni hanashite kudasai) “please talk to me.” 

You could also say はなしましょう (hanashimashō) “let's talk” which sounds a little more friendly and might be a little more appropriate depending on the context. 

I hope this helped!

,べんきょう を がんばって ください! (Benkyō o ganbatte kudasai!)

Thanks, Emma.  I'm having a T-shirt made and wanted to make double sure the Japanese was correct.

Nice ClaudiaE-sc5G! 

In that case, I think はなしましょう (hanashimashō) “let's talk” would work better. 

The kanji is 話しましょう (hanashimashō), just incase you need it!

Thanks.  That's pretty much what I was thinking, too.
