Affirmative tú commands

Affirmative tú commands

I saw this on Facebook today and thought it was a great example of the spanish command forms in practice. Poor little penguin who thought his friend was saying “nothing” (also nada).

Here’s how regular affirmative tú commands are formed, they’re very simple because they mimic the usted/el/ella form in present tense:

ER/IR verbs

AR verbs 

Comer + e    ->   come! (eat!)

Nadar + a    ->   nada! (swim!)

  1. A great example of the spanish command forms… but a bad one of the subjunctive !
    Te dije que nades (presente de subjuntivo) is fact incorrect since the correct expression is Te dije que nadases (imperfecto de subjuntivo)

    Bonito blog.
