Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and technical at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about “Try These!” but no doubt your teachers will talk about the “Imperatives quiz”! If you hear a technical term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.
We can use language not only to ask and tell people about things, but it’s sometimes 'imperative' to tell them to do things, like 'Wait and see!'
Giving orders or instructions is very easy in English. Usually you just start from the normal form of the verb that you want them to do, and go on from there if necessary. Try these imperatives!
If you want to include yourself in a group, to do the thing that you're suggesting, you simply put 'Let's ...' on the front of the sentence. When you are ready to start out, you can say 'Let's go!' (= iVamonos! in Spanish; 'Allons-y' in French)
