Les verbes pronominaux et les pronoms réfléchis

  1. 1. Reflexive verbs and pronouns
  2. 2. What does “reflexive” mean? Certain verbs in French are what we call reflexive verbs. This means the action is reflected on the subject. In English we often use the word -self to express this:Anglais FrançaisI wash myself Je me laveYou dress yourself Tu t’habilles** Remember that if one word end with a vowel in French and the next word starts with a vowel, you drop the vowel from the end of the first word and add an apostrophe.
  3. 3. Conjugation of Reflexive verbs Reflexive verbs take the same endings as regular –er verbs. They require the use of a reflexive pronoun before the verb.Subject pronoun Reflexive pronounje metu teil,elle senous nousvous vousils,elles se
  4. 4. Body Parts When you want to specify a certain body part, the definite article is used, because the reflexive pronouns already indicates whose body part is affected:Je me lave les mains = I wash my handsTu te brosses les dents = You brush your teeth
  5. 5. Commands In an affirmative command the reflexive pronoun follows the verb and is connected to it by a hyphen:Dêpechez-vous! = Hurry up!In negative command the pronoun precedes the verb as usual:Ne vous dêpêchez pas! = Don’t hurry up!
  6. 6. Practice makes perfect! Now it’s time to practice. If you have not mastered –er verb conjugations practice those first :http://wps.prenhall.com/ml_valdman_cheznous_3/28/7 358/1883796.cw/index.htmlThen practice the reflexive verbs with their conjugations:http://wps.prenhall.com/ml_valdman_cheznous_3/28/7 360/1884194.cw/index.html
