Comments Comments  Alternatively: 请你说得大声点儿
qǐng nǐ shuō de dà shēng diǎnr or 请你大声说qǐng nǐ dà shēng shuō. The difference between 请你说得大声点儿 qǐng nǐ shuō de dà shēng diǎnr and 请你大声说 qǐng nǐ dà shēng shuō is that the emphasis is on the outcome in the first sentence, but on the manner in the second sentence.
