vouloir - to want Command forms

Anne's native take on learning French verbs, one at time. This is the whole shebang on VOULOIR. Vouloir is translated as to want. However, this verb is mostly used in its third form, as a polite soft way of making a request. It really is for advanced students. Remember that exclamation points require a space before and after it in French. Much more (and also easier practice) on frenchetc.org
