    Talk to

    Hello.

    What's correct?

    He was talking to me/with me.
    Talk to me please/with me.

    I know: say to me, speak to me and tell _ me.

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Some people would argue that "talk with" describes a two-way conversation and "talk to" describes a one-way conversation. But most people do not make that distinction.
