Spanish Grammar: Pronombres enclítico de OD y OI
Enclictic pronouns

The imperativo is used a lot in all Spanish speaking countries. It is a very efficient verb tense because you can be very specific using just one word.
Levántate.
Stand up.
Siéntese.
Sit down (you, formal).
Hazte la maleta.
Pack your suitcase.
Formation:
Imperativo AR→ habla, hable, hablen ER → come, coma, coman IR → vive, viva, vivan+ me te le > se nos os les > selo la los las
Hábleme.
Talk to me (formal).
Cómaselo.
Eat it (formal).
Escríbele.
Write him/her.
The blue particles refer to the object. We can include the object as well and create the most efficient word ever!
Cómete el plátano.Cómetelo.
Escríbele una postal.Escríbesela.
Cómprame las infusiones.Cómpramelas.
Don't forget to change le/lesse when the direct and indirect objects appear together: "envíaselo", "dáselo".
This "efficiency" also works when we use infinitivo or gerundio:
"Quiero comprarle esta camiseta".
"Estoy enseñándole el departamento".
The tilde are just a mark of intonation. We will work on them later on, so don't worry!
