French Grammar


Impératif mood: simple form

This mode expresses an order. It has only 2nd person singular and plural and 1st person plural. In other persons it is replaced by subjonctif .

Basically the impératif forms are identical to the corresponding forms of présent indicatif .


We do not put personal pronouns before imperative forms:

vous parlez - you speak

parlez - speak
