  • 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.
