    Antworten is 'to answer' NOT 'to repeat'.

    "Wiederholst dass in Deutsch bitte" would be the translation.
    wiederholen - to repeat

    or 'Kannst du das fuer mich wiederholen, bitte?'
    Can you repeat that for me please?

    Oh just read that you also said 'in german' :
    'Kannst du das fuer mich auf deutsch wiederholen bitte?'

    Noch einmal, bitte = "Please repeat that"
    Noch einmal, bitte langsam = "Please repeat that slowly"
    Noch einmal, bitte auf Deutsch = "Please repeat that in German"
    Bitte, dürfen wir auf Deutsch sprachen = "Please could we speak in German"

    That should cover a multitude of possibilities, depends on what you're asking for. Strictly speaking, noch einmal translates as "once more", but it's easier than full sentences.

    Also can someone for once and all explain what the Nominative pronouns mean. The ones I've always have had trouble grasping are ihr/sie/Sie. Just in the nominative case please!!!

    Ich = I
    du = informal you
    er/sie/es = he/she/it
    sie = they
    Sie = formal you
    Wir = us
    Ihr = plural you
    Mann = impersonal (one)

    For each of these categories you conjugate the verb differently, which is where it gets complicated. http://tinyurl.com/39ewk5w for the conjugations.
