  • The Spanish imperative makes a distinction between an affirmative imperative (imperativo afirmativo) and a negative imperative (imperativo negativo). They are formed differently.

    Imperativo afirmativo

    The imperativo affirmativo is used to tell someone TO DO something in a direct manner. More simply put, sentences in the imperative mood are commands.

    • ¡Limpia! (Clean up!)
    • ¡Escribe una carta! (Write a letter!)
    • ¡Id a casa! (Go home!)

    Imperativo negativo

    The imperativo negativo is used to tell someone NOT TO DO something in a direct manner. Again, this mood is used to express commands.

    • ¡No cierres la puerta! (Do not close the door!)
    • ¡No bebas alcohol! (Do not drink alcohol!)
    • ¡No vayáis! (Do not go!)

    To learn more about the negative imperative (imperativo negativo), its formation and the irregular verbs, have a look at our page on Imperativo negativo!
