Are the sentences below imperative?

Please accept my apology.
Let’s go out for coffee after class.

I think they are but my course material say there aren't.

Thanks,

    The first one is, but the second one is not. Imperative is the command for and thus leaves off the subject which is "you". "Let's" (Let us) is a suggestion like "shall we". So it has a subject.

     

    What does your course material say they are?
