REFLEXIVE COMMANDS Reflexive pronouns are attached to affirmative (tú/ usted) commands. Ponerse → Póngase el abrigo.Lavarse → Lávese las manos. *Note: You will often need to use an accent mark to maintain the original stress of the verb. If you are stressing the third syllable from the end, add an accent mark on the stressed vowel. Negative: Ponerse → No se ponga el abrigo.Lavarse → No se lave las manos.

Nosotros Commands : 

Nosotros Commands Reflexive pronouns with nosotros commands work just like the tú/ usted commands. There is just one spelling change—the spelling drops -s. Ducharse → duchémonosVestirse → vistámonos *Note: This dropping of the –s only occurs in the affirmative since in the negative, you must put the reflexive pronoun in front of the command. Negative:Ducharse → No nos duchemos.Vestirse → No nos vistamos.


OBJECT PRONOUNS in COMMANDS Object Pronouns take the place of a NOUN. When you are using object pronouns with an affirmative command, you will attach them to the end of the command. AFFIRMATIVE NEGATIVE BUY THEM FOR HER DON’T BUY THEM FOR HER. Cómpraselas No se las compres. *Sandwich the pronouns between the No and the verb in the negative command.
