Mantenga una distancia prudente

This post specifically relates to teaching how to use the imperative in Spanish. This is quite an intense aspect of grammar for some students and I try to liven it up with some creative exercises. I have used things like commands to Cinderella, imagining that you are giving orders to Manuel in Fawlty Towers and allocating different moods and situations to students for them to come up with a lits of commands. In this case I use an advert for insurance from Icelandic television. The students are asked to imagine what is being said by the woman in Spanish. The context is that the advert relates to safe driving and keeping a safe distance between you and the car in front.

WORKSHEET: imperative
