    Read after me

    I read in CLASSROOM ENGLISH written by Alex Rath of Illinois University:

    Repeat after me.
    Listen and then repeat.

    But every day in China's classrooms, students hear their English teachers say 'Read after me please' or 'Follow me please'. However, when I searched native English webpages, I was surprised to find there're almost no such use in classrooms. Do you native teachers use these two sentences in classrooms when you want the students to read one sentence after another after you?


    Thank you in advance.
