Nosotros commands are used by a speaker to suggest an action be performed by a group of people he or she belongs to.
There are two ways to form nosotros commands in Spanish:
1. Subjunctive Form Commands
The subjunctive form for the nosotros command is most commonly used in informal speech among friends. To form the nosotros subjunctive command, simply use the nosotros form of the present subjunctive.
The present indicative form of the verb ir is used instead of the present subjunctive for affirmative commands.
2. Vamos + Infinitive
For this common command form, simply use vamos plus a plus any infinitive verb.
Negative Nosotros Commands
For negative nosotros commands, you simply add a no or another negative word to the front of the affirmative command.
You do use the present subjunctive form of the verb ir for negative commands.
