    1- I guess that means "leave the dictionary with me" "Me" In Spanish is a pronoun like give me ..... The difference is that "me" is attached to the verb.
    2- I can't catch on this second phrase. It may be an idiom or something of the sort used in some Spanish speaking countries. Anyway, "tu" can be used after the verb in this kind of Spanish. In English you say " you get out of (sal)...." in Spanish "sal tu..) The subject after the verb unlike English! Hope to have helped a bit.

    Let's wait for someone else to tell us about the meaning of the second sentence.

    "sal tú a la pizarra " it means : "get up and go to the board" but it is not nessesary imperative like " get out! " = "sal"
