REFLEXIVE VERBS 2019-2020 Reflexive verbs are recognizable because they end in -se. Reflexive verbs will have two parts when conjugated: a reflexive pronoun and then the normally conjugated verb. Reflexive verbs can be -AR, -ER or -IR and can also stem change. Reflexive verbs are ones where the person doing the action is also the recipient of that action. Examples: I brush my teeth. Me cepillo los dientes. She washes her hands. Ella se lava las manos. Although we say my/her in English, in Spanish we don’t. We use el, la, los and las with body parts. Please note: Reflexive Verbs can be stem changing! To go to bed/lie down

Every reflexive verb must use the corresponding reflexive pronoun. Here are the steps to conjugation: 1. Move SE to the front and change to match subject. The reflexive pronoun is REQUIRED! (The yo, tú, él, etc… is not!) Reflexive pronouns are: (yo) Me - myself (nosotros) Nos - ourselves (tú) Te - yourself (vosotros) Os - yourselves (Él, ella, usted) Se - himself, herself, yourself (Ellos, ellas, ustedes) Se - themselves, yourselves Match the reflexive pronoun to the subject of the sentence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
