To form an informal command in Spanish, we simply take the tú form of a verb, and drop
the “-s”.
Examples:
hablar  hablas
 drop “s”  ¡Habla! = Speak!
Correr  corres
 drop “s”  ¡Corre! = Run!
Vivir  vives
 drop “s”  ¡Vive! = Live!
Try it!
1. mirar
2. comprar
3. escribir
4. abrir
5. comenzar
6. beber
7. limpiar
8. tomar
9. leer
10. cantar

Direct object pronouns attach to the end of affirmative commands. Remember,
affirmatives attach (AA).
The direct object pronouns answer 2 questions, “Who?” and “What?”
The direct object pronouns are:
Me = me
Nos = us
Te = you
Os = y’all
Lo/la = him, her, it
Los/las = them
When you add the direct object to the end, you have to add an accent mark. You separate
the syllables of the word, and write the accent mark on the 3rd to the last syllable.
Look at some examples:
Buy the book
comprar el libro
compra el libro
So com-pra-lo would get an accent mark over the “o” in com

¡Cómpralo!

Write the letter
escribir la carta
escribe la carta
So es-cri-be-la would get an accent mark over the “i" in cri

¡Escríbela!

Open the door
abrir la puerta
abre la puerta
So a-bre-la would get an accent mark over the “a” in a

¡Ábrela!

Try it!
1. bring the food
2. buy the book
3. open the windows
4. bring the car
5. give the pen
