Question
I have a textbook activity that needs completed and I don't understand what to do. This is the activity:

Madame Rigaudet donne quelques conseils à sea petits-enfants. Complète ses conseils avec l'impératif does verbes entre parenthèses. I'll faut choisir logiquement entre la forme affirmative et la for me négative des verbes.

1. Marina,        tôt tous les jours et fais du sport! (se lever)
2. Georges et Marina,     trop tard ce soir! (se coucher)
3. Vous et moi,        bien de notre famille et de nos amis. (s'occuper)
4. Georges et Marina,     tout le temps! Ce n'est pas bon! (se dépêcher)
5. Georges,     tous les jours. (se raser)
6. Marina,      les mains avant de passer à table. (se laver)

Answer

Bonjour,

You have to conjugate  (you give an order --imperative--)   the verb   this kind of verbs are called  "reflexive verbs"  and you have to choose the affirmative or the negative form to make the logical sentences.

Marina  lève-toi tôt tous les jours ...
G et M  ne vous couchez pas trop tard!
Vous et moi, occupons-nous bien de ...
G et M ne vous dépêchez pas tout le temps!
G rase-toi tous les jours
Marina lave-toi les mains

I hope I helped you and I am sooo sorry for the delay. My e-mail account was crazy!

Bonne chance!
