Imperative Direct Objects & Reflexives — Spanish Verb Conjugation

Direct objects and reflexive commands work the same for “Ud.”, “Uds.” and “Tú”. However, they are different for positive and negative commands. Let’s take a look at how they work. For positive commands, direct objects and reflexive pronouns come after the verb. They hook right onto the verb and because of that, a written accent mark has to be placed over the stressed vowel. Here are some examples. Feel free to look at the charts if you need to as you go through this lesson for the first time.

(Tú)Eat it


(Ud) Help me


(Tú)Invite her


(Uds.) Spend it


(Ud.) Teach them


(Tú) Call me


(Uds.) Wait for us


(Tú) Wake up


(Ud.) Sit down please

Siéntese por favor

(Uds.) Stay here

Quédense aquí

(Tú) Get ready


(Uds.) Get dressed


(Ud.) Please shave

Aféitese por favor

(Tú) Brush your hair

Cepíllate el cabello

Next are negative commands. Unlike positive commands, with negative commands, the direct object and reflexive pronouns go before the verbs. Take a look and try to guess the answers before they’re said.

(Tú) Don’t eat it

No lo comas

(Ud) Don’t help me

No me ayude
