About me

Hi, I'm Ellie and I’m an English Language and Literature undergraduate at St John’s College, Oxford. I offer tutoring up to A Level standard in both English and French.

 

English Literature has always been my passion and I'd love to be able to help others share that experience. Having been taught exclusively in French at the French Lycée in London from the age of 4 until the start of my GSCE course at the age of 14, I was bilingual from a very young age, and went on to achieve A*s in both the GCSE and the A Level.

 

I look forward to meeting you!

La forme simple de l’impératif    

 

The present imperative is used to give an order or to offer advice.

 

In the imperative mood, the subject pronoun is not used.

In the imperative, verbs are only conjugated in three grammatical persons (tu, nous, and vous), and most of the conjugations are the same as the present tense.

 

 

-ER VERBS

 

They conjugate in the same way as the present indicative, except the tu form loses the final –s (the nous and vous forms remain unchanged). For example:

 

parler

   (tu) parle

   (nous) parlons

   (vous) parlez

 

aller

   (tu) va

   (nous) allons

   (vous) allez

 

Verbs that are conjugated like -ER verbs (meaning that in the indicative the tu form ends in -es), such as ouvrir and souffrir, follow the same rules as -ER verbs. For example:

 

ouvrir

   (tu) ouvre

   (nous) ouvrons

   (vous) ouvrez

 

(EXCEPTION: the tu form keeps the -s ending if the verb precedes the pronoun y or en. For example: donnes-en or vas-y.)

 

 

-IR and -RE VERBS

 

The imperative conjugation of all regular (and most irregular) -IR and -RE verbs are the same as the present indicative. For example:

 

finir

   (tu) finis

   (nous) finissons

   (vous) finissez

 

faire

   (tu) fais

   (nous) faisons

   (vous) faites

 

However, there are four exceptions:

 

avoir

   (tu) aie

   (nous) ayons

   (vous) ayez

 

être

   (tu) sois

   (nous) soyons

   (vous) soyez

 

savoir

   (tu) sache

   (nous) sachons

   (vous) sachez

 

vouloir

   (tu) veuille

   (nous) veuillons

   (vous) veuillez

 

 

Negative Imperatives

 

The word order is the same as that of all other simple verb conjugations:

 

Finis! - Finish!

Ne finis pas! - Don't finish!

Ne le finis pas! - Don't finish it!

 

Affirmative Imperatives

 

The word order for affirmative commands is different from other tenses and moods: all pronouns follow the verb and are connected to it and to each other with hyphens:

 

Finis-le! - Finish it!

Allons-y! - Let's go!

Mangez-les! - Eat them!

Donne-lui-en! - Give him some!
