EL IMPERATIVO
Commands
Imperativo tú / vosotros
 The informal imperatives are used to
give instructions to people who you
know well or who are younger than
you.
 These can then be sub-divided into
singular (tú) and plural (vosotros)
depending on to whom you are
talking..
IMPERATIVO (positivo) CON TÚ
 Use the tú form of the present tense and
take away the -s. This applies for stem
change verbs.

Where do we put the
reflexive/object pronouns?
they are put AFTER the verb in imperative, but
together with the verb:
sentarse: siéntate
callarse: cállate
levantarse: levántate
cógelo/ traelo / ponla / ábrelos/
for VOSOTROS, the pronoun goes after the
imperative but the D disappears.
callaos/ levantaos/ sentaos
