This lesson is part of the Advanced Spanish Course

In this Advanced Spanish lesson we will look at more ways to give orders, advice and instructions in Spanish using Infinitivo, Que + subjuntivo + (he dicho/te digo), and Te tengo dicho que + subjuntivo. This is the second Spanish lesson in the series. We have already covered this topic a little in my Beginner Spanish course, but here in this new series of Spanish lessons at advanced level we will delve much deeper, uncover new techniques and clear up any doubts or bad habits you may have developed. I hope very much that you are enjoying this Advanced Spanish course. We are now up to lesson 19 and you have had some time to get used to listening to me speaking 100% Spanish in the lessons unlike with the Intermediate Spanish course and the Beginner Spanish course where I explained everything in English and provided Spanish examples to illustrate my points. I hope you can now appreciate that it is much more beneficial for you at this stage to fully immerse yourself in the language and step away from translating everything to and from English. By the end of this course your Spanish will have taken massive steps and you should be completely clear and confident with the Spanish grammar, vocabulary and expressions and armed with all of the necessary skills to understand and join in on any native Spanish dialogue or text.

Lesson notes:

Vamos a continuar viendo más formas de dar órdenes, consejos e instrucciones:

4. Infinitivo:
Se usa para dar órdenes o recomendaciones en carteles o en botes de productos. Por ejemplo, un cartel que dice “No fumar” o una bebida en la que pone “Agitar antes de usar”

5. Que + subjuntivo + (he dicho/te digo):
Lo usamos cuando hemos dado una orden o consejo y la otra persona no te ha oído o no te hace caso. Entonces, al repetir la orden o consejo usas esta estructura. Por ejemplo, le dices a tu hijo “come” y el niño no te hace caso así que le dices “que comas”. Otro ejemplo, le concedes permiso a una persona para que entre en tu casa diciendo “entre, entre”, pero no te oye bien, y te pregunta “¿Qué ha dicho? así que le respondes “que entre”

6. Te tengo dicho que + subjuntivo:
Lo usamos para repetir enérgicamente una obligación que no se ha cumplido. Por ejemplo, si le has dicho a tu hijo, “Limpia tu habitación” y no lo hace, le puedes decir luego: “Te tengo dicho que limpies tu habitación”
