 Übung 3. Drag the commands to the correct picture.



In German, we use the “imperative” to give instructions, directions, or commands, and to make requests. There are different forms of the imperative. For now, we are just focusing on the “Sie”-imperative, the polite form used when addressing someone in a formal manner or when addressing a group of people, such as when an instructor is addressing a class of students.

You can add “bitte” to make your command or request more polite.

The “Sie”-imperative is formed with a verb ending in -en, followed by the pronoun “Sie”, for example:

Lesen Sie (bitte)!               Please read!
Stehen Sie (bitte) auf!       Stand up, please! Please stand up!
