命令文を使ってみよう

Imperative Sentences.
命令文で始めて講師と会話してみましょう。
命令文は相手になんらかのアクションを求めるときに使います。 基本的には動詞の原形を用いて文を始め、主語は使いません。 ただし、特に命令したい相手のことを強く言いたい場合には、初めに主語のYouを入れることもあります。 命令形は相手のことをあまり思いやることのない、高圧的な表現になりがちです。 使う際には相手が気分を損なわないよう、考えてから使うようにしましょう。 (もちろんどうしても使いたい・使わざるを得ない状況もあります) また、好意的な表現をする場合もあります。 高圧的な意味合いは消え、ポジティブなニュアンスが出ますね。 【回答例】 His cooking was great. Try it! 彼の料理は素晴らしかったわ。食べてみて!

Please use an imperative sentence.

Okay. I'll try it. Don't too work. You should take a break when you feel tired. You look bad a little bit. Let's have a cup of tea together.

自然な表現

Okay. I'll try it.
Don't work too hard. You should take a break when you feel tired.
You don't look great. Let's have a cup of tea together.

1. This is more accurate. The phrase "too work" is incorrect as "too" is used to indicate degree and is used before an adjective or adverb.
2. This is more accurate. When you have an adjective and "a little", that phrase should go before the adjective. Also, in terms of meaning, this is better since it is not nice to tell someone they look bad.
Okay, that's a good use of imperative sentences. I would like you to keep practicing some more. Please feel free to ask some questions if you have any.

Sure. Make the list which you want to do. It could help you to realize your dream. Remember to have no shortcut to achieve the goal. Could you tell me other imperative phrase and what situation should we use it?

自然な表現

Sure.
Make the list of things which you want to do. It could help you to realize your dream.
Remember to have no shortcut to achieve the goal.
Could you tell me other imperative phrases and what situation we should use them in?

1. Use this noun here since you're talking about things you want to do, not a list you want to make.
2. Use the plural form in generalisations.
3. This is the correct word order since this is part of the "Could you tell me..." question. If you had a separate question, you could say "What situation should we...?"
4. Use the plural object pronoun. Use this preposition. You use something IN a certain situation.
Okay, let's both write some polite requests using the adverb "please".

Please file these papers for me, they are results from our research.

Please stop complaining, you need to be grateful sometimes.

Please go to the grocery store for me, and get me some cigarettes.

Please don't leave your computer screen open, someone may violate it.

Thank you for useful examples. I often use that phrase when I send a business e-mail. For example, please find the attached shipping documents. The other one, please confirm the revised schedule below. Anyway, I didn't know that the phrase as let's do something is also an imperetive sentence.

Thank you for the useful examples. I often use "please" when I send a business e-mail. For example, "please find the attached shipping documents" and "please confirm the revised schedule below". Anyway, I didn't know that the phrase "let's do something" is also an imperative sentence.

1. Use this article since you're referring to specific examples.
2. Use this instead of "that phrase" to be more clear and specific. Also, this is just one word, not a phrase.
3. When you use an example sentence within another sentence, put it within quotation marks.
4. Join these sentences with this conjunction since you're just providing another example. Put the example sentence within quotes.
5. You don't need "as" before this. Put the phrase within quotes.
6. This is the correct spelling.
Well, sentences beginning "Let us" are not actually an imperative sentence but rather a suggestion. Imperative sentences are requests or commands.

I see. How about the sentence, let's do it by today? I think it means an attention or a request as well. On the other hand, in case of let's go out for dinner, it is just a suggestion. I sometimes use this phrase when I kindly ask something. What do you think?

1. Put the example sentence within quotes.
2. I think this is what you meant.
3. Put the example sentence within quotes.
That's right. You are not suggesting anything there but giving a request or command. So, yes, that is an imperative sentence.

A sentence which begins at verb seems to be a demand or angry, so maybe I hardly express like that. I am thankful for your explanation so far.

自然な表現

A sentence which begins with a verb seems to be a demand or angry, so maybe I hardly express myself like that. I am thankful for your explanation so far.

1. This is the accurate preposition. You begin a sentence WITH something. When you begin "at" something, you're talking about a location where a certain thing is beginning.
2. Use this word for clarity.
  • Study hard.(一生懸命勉強しなさい。)
  • Don't open the window.(窓を開けるな。)
  • Please ~(〜 してください)
  • Be careful.(注意しなさい。)
  • Let's ~(〜しよう)
  • Let's get it done.(その仕事を終わらせよう。)
  • Tell me what you think about that.(それについて考えていることを教えて。)
  • Let's not do it.(それをするのは辞めよう。)
  • Please come here.(こっちに来てください。)
  • Let's take a break.(休憩しよう。)
