The rules:

  • The imperative, (l’impératif in French) is used to give commands, orders, or express wishes, like ‘Stop!’, ‘Listen!’
  • There are only three forms of the imperative: tu, nous and vous.
  • The tu form is used to give an order to a child or when the speaker is on familiar terms with the person addressed.
  • The vous form is used to give an order to a group of people or to address one person in the vous form.
  • The nous form is used to give an order that involves oneself as well as others, though it often expresses a suggestion, (Let’s … ).
  • See page for irregulars and conjugations.
