Imperative Mood

El Modo Imperativo



Also known as the command tense, the imperative tense is used to issue direct commands, make requests, and issue calls to action.

It has no first-person singular (yo) conjugation, as it is impossible to issue yourself commands.

More properly, the imperative is called a mood, rather than a tense, because it makes no claim to when an action is being performed. For the sake of simplicity however, we call it a tense here.
