Curso de ingles gratis con audio Grammar LESSON 7( LECCION7  GRAMATICA) – Basic Level : The Imperative pattern (form)


In this lesson we will talk about how to give commands and orders and to use “please” with the imperative.

The Imperative pattern
It is used to give instructions, commands and orders. It is a very simple structure because we do not need to use the subject. The sentence is started with the verb or verb phrase and “don’t” is used for the negative form.

Positive form:
Verb: Example: (to write / to ask / to read / to bring / to take / to give / to be)

(+) Write your name on the sheet. {There isn’t any subject because it is an order)
(+) Read chapter 5 for tomorrow.
(+) Be quiet!

Negative form:
To use the negative form add the word “don’t” before the infinitive without to

(-) Don’t write on the table.
(-) Don’t read that book.
(-) Don’t bring food to the class.

Example: (figure # 1)

NOTE:
* We can use the word “please” to make a request or petition. We put it at the beginning or end of the imperative sentence (positive or negative).

Use a comma if “please” is at the end of a request. Don’t use a comma if “please” is at the beginning of a request.

Examples:
(+) Please be quiet.
(-) Don’t make noise, please.
(+) Bring me my sweater, please.

Apuntes del Profesor:

Como vemos, es una estructura simple pero es una buena forma de empezar a ver otros verbos además del verbo to be. Recuerden de que tienen que empezar a pensar en ingles así que cuando requieren dar una orden, instrucción o petición (con “please”) pueden utilizar la forma imperativa afirmativa o negativa. Si no saben el verbo basta con buscarlo en el diccionario y simplemente ponen la forma infinitiva sin el “to” antes.

Ejemplo:
No saben como decir “No saltes” Vas al diccionario y buscas y encuentras que saltar viene del infinitivo “to jump”. Por ende se dice “Don’t jump
