    Re: make me meet your brother

    'Don't make me meet your brother' and 'let me meet your brother' make more sense to me, but I am not a teacher.

    Re: make me meet your brother

    Why would you want someone to force you to meet his/her brother?

    If you mean that you want the listener to make arrangements for you to meet his brother, then say something like "I'd like to meet your brother. Can you arrange that?", "Please give me the chance to meet your brother?" or, as Matthew suggested, "Let me meet your brother" (I would add "please").

    Matthew's other suggestion is grammatically correct and sounds as if the other person has already suggested that you meet his brother and you really don't want to.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: make me meet your brother

    Or something like Could you arrange for me to meet your brother/a meeting with your brother.

    Re: make me meet your brother

    Can I say, "Please take me to meet your brother."?

    Re: make me meet your brother

    Yes, but it is different from "Let me meet your brother".
    I am not a teacher.

    It was just my guess and no one knows for sure whether it is the OP's intended meaning.
