nosotros commands

Nosotros commands

“Let’s do something!”

nosotros commands let s
Nosotros Commands: “Let’s….”
  • Nosotroscommands express the idea of “let’s” do something. The speaker is included. To form these:
  • you take the yoform, drop the O
  • and add the opposite “nosotros” ending
  • (This is the nosotros form of the present subjunctive also!).
  • This goes for irregular “yo” forms as well.

Comer como  comamos  Comamos aquí. = Let’s eat here.

  • Compremos leche. = Let’sbuymilk.
  • Poner  pongo  Pongamos la mesa. Let’s set the table.

NOTE: -AR and -ER verbs do not stem-change in the nosotros, so you do not change them in the nosotros commands.

  • Pensaris e – ie but becomes 
  • Pensemos
  • volveris o- ue but becomes volvamos
  • -IR verbs DO stem-change in the nosotros: either to –i or to –u : pidamos, durmamos

Ex: Contemos el dinero = Let’scountthemoney.

  • (Notice that, although “contar” is a stem-changer, it does not change in the nosotros command form.)

To make a nosotros command negative, just add a “no” before it!

  • Let’s not eat here. = _____________________________
  • Let’s not do the homework = _____________________________

Verbs that end in –car, -gar, -zar are going to change endings to:

  • Tocar  toquemos, Pagar  paguemos, Almorzar  almorcemos

*You can also get the meaning “let’s” do something by using “Vamos a” but this can also mean “we are going to talk.” So to be clear, it’s best to use the nosotros command forms.

Try these!

1.Let’s do a project. ________________________________________

2.Let’s not go to the store. ___________________________________

3.Let’s look for new clothes. ________________________________________

4.Let’s not cook dinner. ________________________________________

5.Let’s order food to go (parallevar). ________________________________________

reflexive nosotros commands
Reflexive Nosotros Commands 
  • When you are using a nosotros command with a reflexive verb:
  • you attach the reflexive pronoun (nos) to the verb, which is conjugated in the nosotros command form.
  • HOWEVER, you must remove the “s” from the nosotros ending and attach the “nos” directly to the end of the conjugated command:
  • Por Ejemplo: levantarse  levantemos - s, + nos
  • = levantémonos.
  • Dormirsedurmamos -s, + nos =
  • Durmámonos
  • (note the accent: an accent needs to be placed over the vowel on the third to last syllable to keep pronunciation consistent.)

For negative reflexive nosotros commands, you simply put the pronoun before the command:

  • Por Ejemplo: bañarse  bañemos 
  • no nos bañemos.
  • Verse  veamos 
  • no nos veamos.
  • Remember that Vamos is the positive nosotros command: “Let’s go!” so when you make it reflexive (irse = to leave  let’s leave) you attach the “nos” to this form.
  • With the negative nosotros command for irse, just place the pronoun “nos” before the command (vayamos).

Vámonos = let’s leave!/ Let’s get out of here!

  • No nosvayamos! = Let’s not leave!
