2 Los Verbos Reflexivos en español… In English, we really dont identify with reflexive verbs. So these will seem strange to you.

3 Reflexive Verbs: A verb is reflexive when the subject and the object are the same. I wash myself. subject: I verb: wash object: myself Since the subject and object are the same, the verb is reflexive. I wash the car. subject: I verb: wash object: car Since the subject and object are different, the verb is not reflexive.

4 When a verb is reflexive, the infinitive ends in "se." lavar to wash (non-reflexive) lavarse to wash oneself (reflexive)

5 Reflexive Verbs LAVARSE(to wash oneself) Verb Form Reflexive Pronoun

6 Reflexive vs. Non-Reflexive As I hold up various pictures decide if the action is reflexive or non-reflexive.

7 How do you conjugate these verbs? levantarse 1.Remove the se. 2.Conjugate the verb as always in the present or past tense. levantolevantamos levantaslevantáis levantalevantan 3. Add the reflexive pronouns. me nos te os se

8 The reflexive pronouns are not subject pronouns: me (myself) te (yourself) se (himself, herself, yourself) nos (ourselves) os (yourselves) se (themselves, yourselves)

9 lavarse yo me lavo I wash (myself) nosotros nos lavamos we wash (ourselves) tú te lavas you wash (yourself) (informal) vosotros os laváis yall wash (yourselves) (informal) él se lava he washes (himself) ellos se lavan they wash (themselves) lavarse

10 despertarse (ie) despiertodespertamos despiertasdespertáis despiertadespiertan menos teosse vestirse (i) vistovestimos vistesvestís vistevisten menos teosse

11 acostarse (ue) acuestoacostamos acuestasacostáis acuestaacuestan menos teosse cepillarse cepillocepillamos cepillascepilláis cepillacepillan menos teosse

12 Particular Points To Note… With reflexive verbs that relate to personal care, use the definite article (el/la/los/las) for parts of the body and personal items. Me lavo las manos…I wash my hands. Juan se pone la chaqueta. Juan puts on his jacket.

13 Reflexive Pronouns They can either go before a conjugated verb or after an infinitive. Before the verb: Me voy a lavar el pelo. After the infinitive: Voy a lavarme el pelo.
