Hi Phi,

It seems to me that you have done very well with your use of informal (familiar) affirmative and negative commands/imperatives.

I just have a couple of comments and will also try to answer your questions and the items you don't understand.

First of all, you said:

?que/ le dicen los padres a su hijo? (can someone please literally explain what this means, when i threw it into a translator, i got what parents usually tell their child. What does le have to do with this?

¿Qué le dicen los padres a su hijo? = What do parents say to/tell their son?

"le" is an Indirect Object Pronoun and refers to the hijo.

Next, you asked:

3.. ( sal/salgas ) tarde para el colegio.

I would say: No salgas tarde para el colegio. = Don't leave late for school.

Your next question was:

9..(arregla/no arregles) tu cuarto what does this meaN? fix your fourth?

I believe, that in this context, "arregla" means "tidy up" and "cuarto" means "room".

So, I would say: Arregla tu cuarto. = Tidy up/clean your room.

11.. prueba, depends on parents and food, personally i'd say test it!

I would say that "prueba", in this context, means "try it".

I hope that this helps.

oops! misunderstood your question.

(eight) The informal, affirmative command for ser is sé (con tilde).

Cuarto is another word for room. That should help.

In Spanish, body parts use articles, but when translating, you should use the possessives. Don't put your feet on the table.

Are you sure that #3 doesn't say: No sal, No salgas?

On #12, in Spanish, the infinitive is used as the "ing" noun form in English.

Before leaving.

Good job! smile
