Vosotros Commands in Spanish

Learn how to use vosotros commands in Spanish. Note: The affirmative “vosotros” command is formed by simply replacing the final “r” of the infinitive with “d”

Comprad (vosotros) el libro. – (You-all) Buy the book

Escribid (vosotros) la carta. – (You-all) Write the letter.

Comprad (vosotros) los libros.- (You-all) Buy the books.

 

Note: As with the negative “tú” commands, the negative “vosotros” commands use the corresponding Present subjunctive forms.

No compréis (vosotros) el libro. – (You-all) Don’t buy the book.

No escribáis (vosotros) la carta. – (You-all) Don’t write the letter

No compréis (vosotros) los libros. – (You-all) Don’t buy the books.

Note: With affirmative commands using a reflexive verb, the final “d” of the verb form is dropped before adding the pronoun “os”

Senta – d + os = Sentaos – Sit down.


Tip: The only exception is the verb “irse” which retains the final “d”

¡Idos! – Go away!

 

Note: Verbs ending in “-ir” will require a written accent.

Vesti – d + os = Vestíos – Get dressed.
