    to be remembered to someone

    I met an old friend who were my classmate in Junior grade. He told me that last year he met our teacher (She retired now). He said: "The teacher asked to be remembered to you" I am not sure what that really means? Teacher is still remembering me or she asked our classmate about me since she still remember me?

    Hello Sukhomvit,
    Welcome to the forum

    I have not heard such a sentence myself but it might mean: "The teacher wanted you to remember him or think about him"

    (I am not a teacher)

    sb70012's answer is correct, except that we know from the OP that the teacher is female, so change 'him' to 'her'.

    Re: to be remembered to someone

    You will hear some people say "Remember me to your parents". It basically means "When you see your parents, remind them of my existence". The likely outcome is that when the person sees their parents, they will say "XXX says hello, by the way".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The teacher could have given him something, a gift, a memento to remember her by.

    That's highly unlikely.

    It seems she did not, but she could have.

    If she had given him a memento, he would have something to remember her by.

    True, but the message if that had been the case would be "Please give this to your parents to remind them of me". The original phrase "Please remember me to your parents" is simply a verbal message.

    As Rover said, it's highly unlikely. The words "The teacher asked to be remembered to you" mean roughly what sb suggested. Had the teacher sent a gift, the old friend would have mentioned it rather than just uttering the words we were given.
