Mandatos Informales...

I am having trouble conjugating the informal (tu) commands with the negative.

Ex: no sentarse to no '?'

I've been looking in my text but am having a hard time understanding the conjugations completely. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

To form the singular, affirmative informal command (tú) you use the 3rd person, singular (present tense,indicative mood) verb ending.

To form the singular,negative informal command you use the 2nd person, singular (present tense, informal, subjunctive mood ending).

Also note that the object or reflexive pronouns follow the affirmative command verb, but precede the negative command verb)

affirmative

Hablame. (speak to me) (3rd person singular, indicative mood ending).

Negative

No me hables. (Do not speak to me) (2nd person, informal, singular, present tense, subjunctive mood ending)

Oops. I didn't see that you had an example verb. (sentarse=to sit down)

Siéntate. (sit down or literally, seat yourself)

No te sientes. (Don't seat yourself [don't sit down])
