If you want to tell someone to do something, you must give a  command . Since a command is  addressed directly to someone, the understood recipient of the command is “you.” Or, if you are  included in the recipient group, it can be “us.” The “you” is almost never stated when an English  command is given—as in “take out the trash”—but it is common in Spanish to use the subject  pronoun for “you” (  t ú , usted, ustedes, vosotros/as ) after the command form of the verb. Since there  are four different ways to say “you” in Spanish, there are also four different types of commands, plus  one extra form for the affirmative  t ú  (informal) command. The command form of the verb that you  use depends on whom you are addressing.  In the case of a  t ú  command, different forms are used for affirmative commands and negative  commands. There is also a special set of commands for the

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
