Surprisingly, it didn't work so far. Added (as "Please, help me").

Difference between 'pomóż' and 'pomagaj'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jellei

"pomóż" is perfective, "pomagaj" is imperfective.

Therefore "pomóż" is a lot more probable; in most sentences, especially without further specification, you will ask for 'complete' help in one situation. "pomagaj" would be general, like "Help your grandma every time she asks you too".

I was under the impression that proszę always led an asking phrase. Like proszę powtarzać but never powtarzać proszę. What is most natural?

"powtarzać proszę" is not natural.

Difference between "proszę powtórzyć" and "powtórz proszę" is in formality.

"proszę powtórzyć" is "formal" imperative.

"powtórz" - is informal imperative, "powtórz proszę"- is adding "please" to the sentence, which makes it an informal request.
