Spanish Formal Commands

Have you listen tod any expressions lately with the word “VIVA? ¡Viva Las Vegas! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva la Revolución! These expressions use the formal command, the one used for Ud., or people you are showing respect for by using the formal tense. It is also used for generic proclamations where you are enthusiastically telling the world you want something to happen! The tense used for “you all” also follows a similar pattern. To make a negative command for these tenses, just add the word “NO” before it. As you see below the patterns for Uds. or "you all" are similar, just add an "N" at the end of the word.
