Hola.  In this video lesson, we’ll be talking about negative tú commands.  I would love to tell you that these are just like affirmative tú commands except for with a no before.  But I would be lying.

Hola Señor Jordan! I love the infographics you have on the conman blogs. I’m a high school Spanish 1-3 teacher and commands decor is something I do not have. My students say it’s the one thing I’m missing. I would love to have these infographics made into poster from a local print shop or Staples, but I’m unsure about the copyright and/or proof of permission to use for educational purposes. Any help?! Gracias antemano!
