What does "no seas flojo" mean, and what is the infinitve form of "seas"?
We're learning commands in my spanish class and I understand that "No seas flojo" means don't be lazy. Now I need to say "You shouldn't be lazy". I know the beginning of the sentence is "No debes (infinitive of seas) flojo." Help!
lazy = vago
You shouldn't be lazy = No deberías ser vago
1. Informal second-person singular (tú) present subjunctive form of ser.
Be aware that flojo isn't a completely standard way of saying lazy. Perezoso and vago are more common. Flojo means loose or weak. It is also used for a lazy person in some places.
The phrase should read "no sea floja" Don't be lazy or don't be a slacker
the infinitive is ser this is the informal negative command
Be aware that flojo isn't a completely standard way of saying lazy. Perezoso and vago are more common.
In Mexico, flojo is actually the most common, although it may not be "a completely standard way of saying lazy." And of course, huevón is very common as well, but in street language.
