Nosotros Commands I. In general : Nosotros commands are the equivalent of Let's plus a verb in English, for example, Let's dance! . In Spanish, they may be expressed in two ways, using the vamos a + infinitive construction or the subjunctive. Remember that as with all command forms, negatives are based on the subjunctive and object pronouns are attached to the end of affirmative forms. II. The Vamos a + infinitive construction : In the affirmative form the Vamos a + infinitive construction has two meanings. For example, Vamos a bailar can mean We are going to dance (or We will dance ), as well as Let's dance , depending on the context or the intent of the speaker. It is safer to use exclamation points to indicate its use as a nosotros command. There are two items to remember, however: 1) the reflexive form is ¡Vámonos! ( Let's leave! ; note the omission of the first s ), and 2) negative forms are based on the subjunctive, vayamos. III.
