It’s imperative that you understand the imperative mood if you want to
- give orders
- make requests
- express desires
- provide recommendations
- offer advice
- prohibit actions
When telling someone to do something, you’re giving an affirmative command.
|Espera a tu hermano.||Wait for your brother.|
|Hablemos de otra cosa.||Let’s talk about something else.|
Logically enough, telling someone not to do something is a negative command.
|No escriba en su libro.||Don’t write in your book.|
|¡No gritéis!||Don’t shout!|
