In this tutorial, we learn how to speak English: Imperatives or reporting verbs. Imperative sentences are sentences like "open it!", where you are asking someone to perform an action. You can also say this in a nice fashion, asking "please open it". There are many different forms of imperative sentences, which include: commands/orders, directions, instructions, requests, and warnings. All of these different types of sentences are asking someone to do something, just changing up the way they do it. The form of the sentence will change depending on the subject and how the subject was asked to do something. After learning how these verbs work in different sentences, you will be better able to understand this way of speaking!
