Spanish Commands - Spanish Imperative Lesson Plans


Learning commands in Spanish is a multi-step process. Commands in Spanish use the imperative form. Because there are 4 forms of “you” in Spanish, there are at least that many command patterns. Additionally, there are some irregular forms, and the negative commands for in Spanish follow a different pattern. For Spanish 1 students, teachers often start by teaching the regular and affirmative command form, as well as teaching the overall concept of when to use the imperative.

Students quickly grasp the imperative concept once asked to picture their parent or guardian ordering them around: “Study.” “Eat your vegetables.” “Take out the trash.” From there, the teacher can explain the difference between an affirmative, “Take out the trash”, and a negative command, “Don’t take out the trash.” In the following storyboard series, students will only employ affirmative commands to conjugate Spanish verbs. Thus, the following cannot be used for Ud. or Uds. or vosotros. Neither can they be used in order to say “Don’t…”.
