1.請排隊 ＂please line up＂
please form a single line (along the wall)...
please form 3 lines, one for each cashier...
也許是因為＂line up＂常用在槍決 或是 警察在認證嫌犯 的狀況

In US, line is more frequently used than queue. Some how queue has special meaning indicating 'stronger relationship' between each link in the queue.
Another commonly used is file (in US, more frequently even than queue).
2013-10-11 23:25:25 補充：
File is used almost in all traffic report. For example,
Only single file can pass through the broken bridge.
The file = line of cars (or traffic flow of any type).
2013-10-11 23:26:59 補充：
My understanding is that "file" is used more on "moving" things and "line" is more static (or moves slowly).
File also suggests "better order" (one by one) than line.
2013-10-12 00:46:34 補充：
Where does a line start? Does it start at the counter where you receive the service or does it start at the place where the new person join?
2013-10-12 04:03:06 補充：
Yes, in English, line has no particular shape. Line is only a virtual concept requiring certain 'sequence' on its 'contents'.
However, certian cultures may have more stringent requirements.
2013-10-12 04:09:36 補充：
Taking CN排隊 for example. It seems to suggest certain degree of "organizational order" in it.
In US, many places (such as federal social security office) use virtual lines where you check in at info counter to take a number to get in one of the 6 lines they have.
2013-10-12 04:13:56 補充：
In this case, a line does not need to be viewable (or even perceiveable) with its sequence controlled by a computer.
2013-10-12 04:34:21 補充：
please form (a single) line (along/down the hallway).用在定點的排隊(銀行領錢)
please form (a single) file (and move along). 用在移動的排隊(進場)
3 lines, please 請排成三行
3 files, please 請排成三行(依序前進)
Lines, please ladies and gents...請排隊好嗎?
Could we form 2 files to the cafe, please, kids.孩子們,兩列進餐廳好吧?
Do not jump/cut the line, please.
The line/queue starts there
The line starts from the lady in red cloth/dress.
Please get in line behind her.
You may enqueue after her.

A-bug, here is a bonus for you:
Please take a number here to get in line (for Dr. Chin or shake hands with princess).
請在這裡掛號排隊 (陳醫生門診 或 與 美麗公主握手)

where does the line start? I asked at 010.
For sure it is culture dependent and in English:
2013-10-12 23:47:07 補充：
In the context of the line as a whole, the line starts at service counter.
In the context of enqueuing and the persons in the queue, the line starts at the place when he joins the line.
They are exactly opposite to each other.
2013-10-12 23:50:40 補充：
As for "enqueue", she gave you the answer she just read from her dictionary.
I use this word for more than 15 years. I used this word daily in high school when studied queuing theory. And you think she could be right?
2013-10-12 23:53:48 補充：
Give you a few more examples,
1. Ladies and gentlemen, please enqueue now.
2. You may enqueue after filling our this form.
2013-10-13 00:19:26 補充：
2. You may enqueue after filling out this form. // sorry for the typo.
2013-10-13 00:33:26 補充：
tp prove my point at 018,
When you see a line and ask any one in line
"where does the line START?"
"where does the line END?"
2013-10-13 00:48:21 補充：
When you see soemone is cutting in line
You will say:
"Dude, the line STARTs there. Get in line, would you?"
"The line ENDs there..."
2013-10-13 00:49:12 補充：
But if you ask a space designer of a theater on how she will place the ticket queues, she will say "the lines START here (at the ticket counters) and may END there".
That is the point I want to make and the Lolipop in answer 001 fails to observe.
2013-10-13 03:07:39 補充：
I wrote comment 010 way before answering the post. I wrote 010 to see if A-bug is able to participate in the discussion.
1. you are NOT qualified to judge the correctness of my answer, with your limited English knowledge.
2013-10-13 03:10:14 補充：
2. You also have little real-live English experiences and almost all you know is from a few text books whatever they used in TW.
2013-10-13 03:15:10 補充：
3. as you said on the other post - all your criticisms to you were "不說妳的司馬昭之心, 大家翻的好不好、錯不錯, 不是妳說了算. "
You are a big fat hypocrite.
2013-10-13 03:19:44 補充：
All your criticism to others are "necessary corrections to benefit the confused learners" while others to you are "evil deeds."
What a hyportie (with voting troops who never came to English board, except when voting for her.)
What a big fat HYPOCRITE...

Not at all, what I said was all common sense in the daily life of anyone in USA. I was surprised by the strong and uncalled-for reaction from the old woman.
If you think that was good, wait until you see me debating a judge.
2013-10-13 13:41:42 補充：
I don't deny most of what you said in 037, however, she simply cannot handle disagreement and has no self-discipline. She uses her voting troops at will.
2013-10-13 13:43:01 補充：
She fails to understand that a critical mission of being a master is to grow and enrich the new comers and make them interested in English. What she wants is win/win/win.
2013-10-13 14:20:50 補充：
I have the email from her and her other ID, asking me to support her "quality answer". Is that strong enough a proof?
2013-10-13 14:25:37 補充：
Also, why don't you also stop labeling your answer? Of course, you want your voting troops simply vote for the answers with your name or "Infinito" or "cavalier"?
Oh, she also used those ID to multi-vote for herself too. Shame on you...

如果是告訴(吩咐)一群凌亂聚集的人要排成一隊，就請他們"please form a line". 如果是告訴某人要去排隊(隊伍已經存在)，就請他(們)"please get in a line；或是join a queue"。

Please line up. (美式)
Please queue up. (英式)
Please don't cut in line. (美式)
Please don't jump the line. (美式)
Please don't jump the queue. (英式)
Please don't queue-jump. (英式)
No queue-jumping, please. (英式)
註: 在美國用line或queue都通; 在英國大多慣用queue.
The end of the line/queue is over there.
The lady in red is where the end of the line/queue is.
Please line/queue up behind her.
Please join the queue behind her.
2013-10-12 08:16:54 補充：
樓下大大也說明得很好, 值得參考, 除了有個錯誤在兩處;
隊伍的起始處是begin/beginning或start, 尾端新排處室the end of the line.
她卻逆向思維把隊伍尾端說成了start, 那難道隊伍起始處要用end嗎? 這是不對的.
2013-10-12 08:19:59 補充：
>Where does a line start? Does it start at the counter where you receive the service or
>does it start at the place where the new person join?
2013-10-12 08:22:17 補充：
我可以肯定指出: "Where does the line start?"問的是起始處, 而不是尾端;
要新加入隊伍的那一端才是尾端(end of the line).
One should join a line/queue at its end, and not where it starts or by cutting in.
2013-10-12 08:35:08 補充：
話說回來, 一位欲加入隊伍者不論是問start或end, 聽者都會懂得是在問尾端, 這是語感所致, 因為判定他是問在那兒加入隊伍, 雖然錯用start也無妨.

這個囚犯不過是在為她的錯誤硬拗強辯而已, 隊伍的尾端是不會用start的, 隊伍的起始處更不會用end, 舉世皆然, 中文英文無異, 雖然聽者也會懂, 那是語感所致, 錯誤仍是錯誤.
2013-10-13 13:52:40 補充：
>What she wants is win/win/win.
You're describing yourself. I've never had any voting troop. Your comments are simply out of jealousy. If those voting my answers are my voting troops, you have your own all the time, too.
