    ◘  Verbs in the imperative can only be conjugated in three persons: the 2nd person singular and the 1st and 2nd person plural.

    ◘ The subject personal pronoun is not expressed before the verb.

    ◘ It is formed on the same radical as the present tense of the indicative to which the following endings are added: -e, -ons, -ez.

    You will notice that you should not put "-s" in the second person of the imperative (except for the exceptions described later in the course).

    Ex: Mange, mangeons, mangez ( verb eat )

    Ex: Offre, offrons, offrez ( verb offer )

     

    _With the exception of the following verbs whose stem differs from the present tense :

     Être / to be: sois, soyons, soyez

    Avoir / to have : aie, ayons, ayez

    Savoir / to know : sache, sachons, sachez

    Now you know the rule, you should to be able to do your homework:

    1) Parles à ton ami, Marc! (parler - tu form) 

    2) N’________ pas de mettre les verres sous la table. (oublier) (vous form) 3) Ne ________ pas cette rue la nuit! (descendre - tu form)4) Ne ________ pas avec les casseroles. (jouer) (tu form)
