Formal Commands (Mandatos formales) and Indirect Object Pronouns (pronombres de objeto indirecto)

Author: Melissa Schenck

To be able to form formal commands. 

Formal commands can be found in many places: the workplace, public signs, instructions for set-up of devices, ads, and even recipes.  You can use them to address one person, or with a change of a letter, tens, hundreds, thousands or millions!!  Since they are formed only using one method (unlike informal tu commands) you may find them more user friendly.
