There is a special structure we use to make commands and direct instructions/requests in English

For example:

“Stop making so much noise!” 

Compare it with a regular sentence, which only describes and does not command: “You make so much noise.”

Now, this sounds very direct. You can add “please” and make it gentler 😊

“Stop making so much noise please.”
 You can also use the modal verb “must”:

“You must stop making so much noise.”
 You can use the modal verb “will” to make it even more polite:

“Will you stop making so much noise please?” Click here to see the full lesson on Commands in English.
