Imperative 2 is the forty-ninth (assuming read left to right) skill in the Russian language tree. This skill has five lessons, and it teaches more imperatives to supplement Imperative 1.

Grammar NotesEdit


Imperfective is used for:

  • Specifying the manner in which the action is completed;
  • When you are allowing the action but not directly supporting it ("I don't mind");
  • When you do not want them to do the action; and
  • When you are inviting someone to do something like sit down (or something else obvious).

Perfective is used for:

  • Asking politely to do something;
  • Asking for something to be done that is not obvious; and
  • Allowing the action to be done and supporting it.


Положить is for placing down an item in a place, and поставить is for objects that are set up or stand up. In other words, the former is for "lying" objects and the latter is for "standing" objects.
