How to conjugate the imperative in the Spanish grammar

The imperative for the 2nd person singular (tú)

Giving orders, recommendations and instructions in Spanish

lavar (infinitive) / tú lavas ( present indicative) / lava ( imperative)

To conjugate the imperative in the 2nd person singular (tú) we need to remove the -s from the 2nd person singular (tú) form of the present indicative. However, the personal pronoun is not used.

The imperative for the 2nd person plural (vosotros/-as)

Giving orders, recommendations and instructions in Spanish

To conjugate the positive imperative for the 2nd person plural (vosotros) we take the infinitive and replace the -r with a -d.

cortar / cortad
