Imperatives and its usage

Postby Jen36 » Thu Apr 11, 2013 7:50 am

I'm preparing a poster for an upcoming class. Can you please advise if the sentences below are gramatically sound?

Want to undestand what the people around you are saying?
Want to speak with confidence?
Then join us now!

Someone commented that using want and then at the beginning of the sentence is bad English but I beg to differ but I just can't explain it.
It has something to do with imperatives and its usage.....
Thanks

It is informal, but as such highly suitable for an advertising poster.
Your sentences are fine!
