Please take out a sheet of paper and write down any notes you feel will help you better understand how to correctly form and use affirmative tú commands.
You would use this command form when talking to one person. This person would be someone you are familiar with or that is younger than you. For example, you might be telling a friend, family member, or a kiddo you are babysitting something they need to do. When you tell them what needs to be done, you would use this command form.
In order to give these commands, you use the same present-tense forms of the verbs that you use for él, ella, Ud. Por ejemplo:
|Infintiive||él, ella, Ud. form of Verb||Affirmative Tú Command|
|hablar||habla - he/she talks / you formal talk||¡Habla! - Talk!|
|leer||lee - he/she reads / you formal read||¡Lee! - Read!|
|escribir||escribe - he/she writes / you formal
|¡Escribe! - Write!|
*There are certain verbs with irregular commands forms. Two of these verbs are poner and hacer.
|Infintive||él, ella, Ud. form of Verb||Affirmative Tú Command|
|poner||pone - he/she puts / you formal put||¡Pon! - Put!|
|hacer||hace - he/she does or makes /
you formal do/make
