  • Attention! This is a wrong presentation of imperative in French. Vendre: imperative: vends, vends vendons
    Finir :imperative : finis, finissez, finissons.
    only the verbs in - er at the infinitive take out the -s for the 'tu' form: parler: imperative: parle ( no s at the end) , parlez, parlons.

    The imperative, called l'impératif in French, is a verb mood which we
    used to  give an order
    express a desire
    make a request
    offer advice
    recommend something
    French imperative conjugations are relatively simple. There are only three grammatical persons that can be used in the imperative: tu, nous, and vous, and most of the conjugations are the same as the present tense - the only difference is that the subject pronoun is not used in the imperative.Tu Nous Vous Ferme la porte Fermons la porte Fermez la porte.  Close the door. Le’t close the door close the door
  • 4. L’impératif (Informal (tu))
    When you tell someone to do something you use the command form of a verb. The imperative (impératif).
    To give a command to someone in an informal way you use the tu form of the verb minus the –s. without tu .
    Examples:
    Tu dances (you dance/ you are dancing)
    Dance! (Dance!) (dancerER verbs)
    Tu vends (you sell/ you are selling)
    Vend! (sell!) (VendreRE verbs)
    Tu finis (you finish/ you are finishing)
    Fini! (Finish!) (finirIR verbs)
  • 5. L’impératif (formal way -vous)
