French Imperative Mood
The French imperative mood, le mode impératif, is the mode of speech used when speakers are giving instructions or commands.
Allez ! - Go!
There are two tenses within le mode impératif:
- Impératif Présent
- Impératif Passé
The present imperative is far more common, so when people talk about the imperative that's usually what they mean.
