These are sooooooooo easy. Well, they’re easy if you did a good job of learning how to form the subjunctive and not so much if you didn’t. USTED commands are just like the subjunctive: hablesalgaconozca comavuelvaalmuerce digaleavea
Let’s review how to form the subjunctive: Drop the –o off the yo form Add –e to –ar verbs; add –a to –er/-ir verbs Remember that verbs ending in –car, -gar, and –zar are going to spell change: tocar – toque pagar – pague comenzar – comience There are five irregulars: sersea irvaya sabersepa estaresté dardé And that’s it. There are some considerations with stem-changing verbs, but they don’t affect Ud./Uds.
One more thing: pronouns. You have to put object pronouns on the END of affirmative commands: cómalosábrala ayúdemepídalos You have to add an accent mark over what was originally the next-to-last syllable whenever you put a pronoun on the end of a command. But you put the pronoun BEFORE a negative command: no los comano la abra no me ayudeno los pida
Oh—and about Uds. Commands: all you have to do is put an –n on the end of the Ud. Command. cómanlosábranla ayúdenmepídanlos no los comanno la abran no me ayuden no los pidan
And that’s it. Click here to go to your homework.
