Transcript of Reflexive verbs
-IR Some Spanish verbs are reflexive,
meaning they reflect the action back onto the doer Look at the following pictures and determine which are reflexive and which are not reflexive. Which images were reflexive
and which were not?
Discuss why. Now let's learn how to conjugate these reflexive verbs! So...
These reflexive verbs require a reflexive pronoun to indicate that the subject is also the direct object. Without a reflexive pronoun, the verb isn't reflexive! Reflexive Verb Pronouns me te se nos se When creating a reflexive verb construction, you need
Subject + Reflexive pronoun + reflexive verb Remember take the pronoun
Put it in your "pocket"
Then you conjugate
Take the pronoun "out"
Match it with the subject
Place it in the front of the conjugated verb Conjugate the following verbs on your notes: lavarse
bañarse Create your verb chart! Lavarse me lavo te lavas se lava nos lavamos se lavan Bañarse me baño te bañas se baña nos bañamos se bañan A couple of things about reflexive verbs... Many reflexive verbs involve the mention of a body part, and because it’s already clear to whom the body part belongs (because of the reflexive verb), you don’t use a possessive pronoun. Instead of saying, “I brush my hair,” for example, you’d say, “I brush the hair,” because the reflexive pronoun already signals that it’s your hair. Stick to the correct order!
Subject + reflexive pronoun + reflexive verb Next we will learn using reflexive verbs as infinitives... But for now, master conjugating reflexive verbs!
