Review reflexiveverbs

  1. 1. In Spanish, an action that a subject performs on or for his or her self is considered reflexive. To express this action, a reflexive pronoun is placed before the verb in a sentence.
  2. 2. Los pronombres…. Subject Pronoun Reflexive Pronoun yo tú ud./él/ella nosotros(as) vosotros(as) uds./ellos/ellas me te se nos os se
  3. 3. The same verb can be used in reflexive or non-reflexive situations. Non-Reflexive Reflexive Compré una revista. I bought a magazine. Inés lava el coche. Inés is washing the car. Miramos la televisión. We are watching television. Me compré una revista. I bought myself a magazine. Inés se lava el pelo. Inés is washing her hair. Nos miramos en el espejo. We look at ourselves in the mirror.
  4. 4. The reflexive pronoun corresponds to the subject and is placed immediately before the verb in a one- verb sentence: I took a bath at six. Unlike subject pronouns, reflexive pronouns are REQUIRED in a sentence.
  5. 5. In more complex sentences, the reflexive pronoun can be attached to the end of an infinitive or participle. I’m going to bathe at six. I’m taking a bath right now.
  6. 6. Reflexive pronouns can correspond to the English: myself/yourself/his(her)self, ourselves, themselves. Reflexive verbs are identified by the “se” attached to the end of the infinitve: ducharse, peinarse,vestirse, etc.
