VOSOTROS COMMANDS: All

Rules:

VOSOTROS commands, which translate to "You all should...", are conjugated in two different ways depending on whether you're saying a positive or negative command. The formula is:

  1. Positive commands: Drop the "r" at the end of the infinitive and replace it with a "d." Example: comer: comed
  2. Negative commands: Use the "vosotros" conjugation of the present subjunctive. Example: comer: no coméis
Verb POSITIVE COMMAND NEGATIVE COMMAND
beber bebed no bebáis
jugar jugad no juguéis
almorzar almorzad no almorcéis

Irregular verb: The verb "ir" is irregular in the positive form. It is: idos

Commands with reflexive verbs

If the verb is reflexive, you have different rules for the reflexive pronoun depending on whether it's a positive or negative command.

  1. Positive commands: Place the reflexive pronoun attached at the end of the command In addition, eliminate the final "d" of the command as you attach the pronoun. For example, levantarse would be levantaos, not levantados.
  2. Negative commands: Place the reflexive pronoun before the command.
Verb POSITIVE COMMAND NEGATIVE COMMAND
acostarse acostaos no os acostéis
despertarse despertaos no os despertéis
