Señor Jordan

03 Ustedes Commands

¡Hola!  If you’ve wanted to boss around multiple people in Spanish, then the ustedes commands are the commands for you.  Notice that in Latin America, this will be the standard way to boss around more than one person.

In Spain, you might come across the vosotros commands more often, while ustedes commands could still be used.
