  5. "Come and drink."

"Come and drink."

Translation:आओ और पियो ।

January 4, 2019



Any specific reason it is पियो and not पिओ ?


Both forms are used. Refer to this discussion for more on the subject.


Why is आइए not correct?


आइए is correct and is the more polite form. What did you use for 'drink? The polite imperative form should be पीजिए.


Thank you. I don't think that I used the correct form for drink and that's probably why it was marked incorrect.


I would much like more variation in this lesson, with more different verbs. For the time being, it´s always the same: "eat and go", "come and eat", "don´t drink water" ...


Is आकर पियो correct too?


What's the difference between आ and आओ? पी and पियो? Is the latter more imperative?


Hindi has three forms of 'you' - तू , तुम and आप in increasing order of formality. Therefore, the imperative can take three forms depending on which of these is the implied subject - आ and पी with तू, आओ and पियो with तुम, आइए and पीजिए with आप.

For example, you'd say आओ और पियो when talking to a friend and आइए और पीजिए when talking to a stranger.
