Comprehensive, fun, easy-to-follow Spanish courses of video lessons (with notes), conversation audios (with transcripts), interactive exercises (with answers), and texts (with transcripts).

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 30th 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 using regular Imperatives in Spanish with orders, suggestions, and instructions. In the next video lesson in this course we will look at how to use irregular Imperatives in Spanish, but first we will practice conjugating regular Spanish verbs. When giving orders, suggestions, and instructions in Spanish you have to change the verb and there are specific rules which govern this with regular verbs ending in -ar, -er, and -ir. These rules were explained in depth in the original video lesson on this topic and if you can’t remember them very well I suggest you watch that video a few times first.

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 30: Practice using Imperatives in Spanish from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.
