    • Prepositions

      • THE IMPERATIVE PATTERN It is used to give instructions, commands and orders. It is a very simple structure because we do not need to use the subject.
      • The sentence is started with the verb or verb phrase and “don’t” is used for the negative form.
        • Positive form: Verb:
        • Example: (write / ask / read / bring / take / give / be)
          • (+) Write your name on the sheet.
          • {There isn’t any subject because it is an order) (+) Read chapter 5 for tomorrow. (+) Be quiet!
        • Negative form: To use the negative form add the word “don’t” before the infinitive without to
          • (-) Don’t write on the table. (-) Don’t read that book. (-) Don’t bring food to the class.

    • Getting someone's attention Excuse me,  Pardon me,  Sorry to bother you, but . . . Asking the favor (from least formal to most polite): Can you  open the door for me? Will you  hand me a pencil? Would you  turn on the air conditioner? Could you  help me with these boxes? Would you please  turn down the music? Could you possibly  give me a ride home?  Would you mind  tak ing  a picture for us? Would you be so kind as to  lend me your cell phone? Follow-up Thanks for your help Thank you so much. Thanks, I really appreciate it. Sample conversation : Excuse me, could you do me a favor? Sure, what is it? Could you help me move these chairs? No problem. / I'd be glad to. Thanks a lot.
