I totally agree with Brandon Simpson. In addition, I use the ''vosotros'' 
form to teach the ''vos'' form:

vosotros habláis
vos hablás

vosotros comprendéis
vos comprendés

vosotros vivís
vos vivís

vosotros tenéis
vos tenés

And even if you do not use the ''vosotros'' form yourself, it's helpful to
be able to understand everything. My teacher was a Spaniard and didn't
teach us the ''vos'' form, so when I went to Nicaragua I first didn't
understand the ''vos'' form.
