A video lesson from the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course which practices the 69 topics of the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Theory Course.

This is the 32nd Spanish lesson in the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course. This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at pre-intermediate level with a native Spanish speaker.

In this interactive Spanish video lesson we will practice making sentences in Spanish and understanding sentences in Spanish when giving instructions and advice using Spanish Imperatives. This is the third video lesson in a series of lessons investigating Spanish Imperatives. In the previous two video lessons we practised how to conjugate regular and irregular Spanish verbs with Spanish Imperatives when giving orders, suggestions, and instructions. Now we will see how much you remember and if you can apply the theory you have learned.

Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.

This lesson practices the information taught in Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 32: Practice giving instructions and advice in Spanish with imperatives from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.
