French 102 February 1, 2008 The class posed the following question to one another as part of an oral exercise: Est-ce que vous vendez vos livres à la fin du semestre ? o Do you sell your books at the end of the semester Qu’est-ce que vous allez faire pendant le week-end? o What are you going to do this weekend? The class discussed the imperative. The imperative is used to issue orders or commands. To issue the imperative subject is removed from a declarative statement while the verb remains conjugated.
