In other words, when the subject does something to himself.When a verb is reflexive, the infinitive ends in "se."
18 Continuation of notesTo learn to conjugate reflexive verbs, you need a different set of pronouns called "reflexive pronouns." These pronouns are positioned before the verb, while the ending "se" is dropped and the verb is conjugated normally.The reflexive pronouns are not subject pronouns; rather they are object pronouns.The purpose of the reflexive object pronouns is to show that the action of the verb remains with the subject.
19 Continuation of notesnos (ourselves) os (yourselves) se (themselves, yourselves)me (myself) te (yourself) se (himself, herself, yourself)To conjugate a reflexive verb:Remove the “se”Rearrange – move the “se” to the front of the verbMake a change – change the “se” to match the subjectChopsuey – remove the –ar,-er, or –irSwitch-a-roonie – make a stem change if necessarySchmoosh – add the correct ending to match the subject(yo)meLavoarse(tú)teacueostarasse
20 Continuation of notesWhen two verbs are used together, the first verb is conjugated and the second verb is left in the infinitive form. (big brother-little brother verbs)Example:I want to eat. Quiero comer.When the 2nd verb is reflexive, change the “se” to match the subject, but leave it at the end of the verb.I need to go to bed Necesito acostarme
