MANDATOS When you ask someone to do something, you basically say: YOU, DO THIS! (or at least think of it this way in Spanish.) So, one needs to figure out who is the YOU.
MANDATOS When you talk to a stranger, an adult, or a person who commands some respect, use USTED. When you talk to a friend, sibling, parent, person younger than you, or anyone with whom you are on a first-name-basis, etc., use TÚ. When you are talking to two or more people, use USTEDES.
MANDATOS USTED Take the (present-tense) yo-form of the verb, drop the –o, and add: -e (if it was originally an –ar verb.) -a (if it was originally an –er/-ir verb.) Hint: this is when Sra. S. does the CLICK sound, and twists her fingers!
MANDATOS USTED examples: You, speak!Hable (Ud.) You, eat!Coma (Ud.) You, write!Escriba (Ud.) Sometimes the YO-form looks & is irregular: -pongo ponga -digo diga -conozco conozca
MANDATOS TÚ Take the (present-tense) él/ella-form of the verb, and use it! You, eat!Come (tú). You, sleep!Duerme (tú). You, talk!Habla (tú).

MANDATOS - Negativo Sometimes you will tell someone: DONT! If you are talking to UD.: put NO in front of the command. Dont eat!Sr., ¡no coma! If you are talking to TÚ: put NO then (Ud. command + s) Dont eat!Paco, ¡no comas!
