1 “Nosotros/as” Commands
By Jami Sipe Using “Let’s” ©2010 Teacher’s Discovery

2 Generally, these forms translate to “Let’s” statements in English.
Examples: Let’s talk. Let’s study. ©2010 Teacher’s Discovery

3 To form these commands in regular Spanish verbs:
1 Take the present tense “yo” form of the verb. 2 Drop the “o.” For –ar verbs, add “–emos” and for –er and –ir verbs, add “–amos.” 3 (Use the same endings as you do with the “nosotros/as” form of the subjunctive.) ©2010 Teacher’s Discovery

4 escribir → ¡Escribamos!
Ejemplos: hablar → ¡Hablemos! vender → ¡Vendamos! escribir → ¡Escribamos! ©2010 Teacher’s Discovery

5 sacar →¡Saquemos! pagar → ¡Paguemos! almorzar → ¡Almorcemos!
Note: Some verbs (–car, –gar and –zar) have spelling changes in order to retain the correct pronunciation. Ejemplos: sacar →¡Saquemos! pagar → ¡Paguemos! almorzar → ¡Almorcemos! ©2010 Teacher’s Discovery

6 recordar → ¡Recordemos! pensar → ¡Pensemos! volver → ¡Volvamos!
Stem-changing verbs, except –ir verbs, will not change in the “nosotros/as” form. recordar → ¡Recordemos! pensar → ¡Pensemos! volver → ¡Volvamos! entender → ¡Entendamos! ©2010 Teacher’s Discovery

7 Stem-changing –ir verbs will make the following changes:
