AAE Q84: 'you first'


I have a question.

How should I translate the word "Prosím".

For example in the situation:
I am going with somebody to the room,at the door i will show him to go as first(it is polite). So I have to say: "Please you first?"
Or its another word than Please?

I have found the word:"If you please"



Hi Petra

In the situation you described, the most common expression to use is:

"After you"

but it is also fine to say

"You first"

Hope this helps
