    Default Imperative of Jugar?

    I need the familiar imperative of jugar, as in:

    "Play it, Sam."

    Could someone help?

    Default Tócala, Sam

    Hi! Play in Spanish can be translated as Jugar but also as in Tocar (the piano, the guitar, etc)

    I don't think this Play it, Sam is translated as "Juega Sam!" but more like
    Tocar (Play the piano) el piano and it is translated as
    "Tócala Sam" or "Toca la canción, Sam" (Play the song, Sam) as in the film...
    hope it helps...

    Default Yes, I should have been more specific...

    Thank you, Sandra

    I am attempting to direct/entice a fifth-grader to play an interactive game (which is actually a thinly disguised quiz).

    I have gotten several suggestions which, to my poorly-tutored but skeptical eye, seem to be long on creativity, especially with respect to which letter gets the accent mark.

    Irregular verbs ... Grrrr.

    I am so happy I am not trying to do this in French.

    Ok, now I know. So, in this is case it is indeed
    "Juega con____, Sam"
    Play with a toy, for example..."Juega con el juguete, Sam"
    juguete/toy is replaced by whatever you want him to play with.

    juega...the "e" gets the accent.

    hope I was of some help this time!!!
