You'll have to (do something)

This is one way to ask a friend or acquaintance to do something social. For example:

You'll have to come over and visit us sometime. 

You'll have to send me a copy of that. (When looking at a photo someone took)

Use this expression for fun social things. Don't use it to talk about something that a person has to do for work or for large requests.

When you pronounce this phrase, don't put stress on "have to". Put the main stress on the verb, and a little stress on "you".

tell me more about (something)

Say this in a polite conversation when you want to hear someone's stories about something. For example:

Tell me more about how you and Grandpa met.

Tell me more about your trip!
