A song

Tori uses a song to the tune of “Happy Birthday” in order to remember the irregular forms of the negative commands.  She describes this strategy as “fun and easy to remember.”

“Because of that little song, … I remember they’re negative forms.  Otherwise I’m like ‘What are these verb forms?'"

Listen to the song!  By the way, we took the liberty to add a few lyrics to add a phrase to Tori’s song, namely, Estos son los mandatos ‘These are the commands.’
