El Imperativo … con música! Posted by on Jun 24, 2009 in Spanish Culture, Spanish Grammar

I know how it feels to have to learn all those conjugation forms by heart… and there are so many exceptions to the rules… blah blah blah.

So, dear reader, to help you learn about the imperative a little more pleasantly, I chose two videos: the first one is Thalia’s Regresa a Mí, where you can learn many regular and irregular imperative forms while you sing along. The verbs you have to pay attention to are: dar – regresar – decir (negative) – tener – dejar – tratar – tomar – decir.

Before JLo started dating Marc Anthony (who, by the way, was married to a Miss Universe!, Sí, estoy muy chismoso hoy), they did a duet singing No Me Ames (Don’t Love Me). Now, try to do the same by finding the imperative form of the following verbs: decir – dudar – amar – dejar – escuchar . Tip: many of them are negative imperative, ok?

*Well, they’re divorced now, what can you do?

  1. Cyndi:

    Thanks, but to be honest, I could barely understand a word Thalia said. I caught only regresa a mi and no digas. I don’t usually have quite so much trouble with songs, but this time everything seemed mushed together. I know the imperative forms of the words she sang (I googled for the lyrics), but I still couldn’t understand her when she sang. 🙁

    Hey Cyndi!

    Maybe if you listen to a studio version your listening comprehension will be better. Want to try that?

    Let me know when you do it!
