Use Reflexive Verbs in Spanish
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is part of a series of videos on the Spanish language. In this video, we are going to show you how to use "Reflexive Verbs".
- 15This is how "Levantarse" is conjugated in present tense.
- "Me levanto" - I get up or lift myself up
- "Te levantas" - You lift yourself up
- "Se levanta" - Him or Her
- "Nos levantamos" - We lift ourselves up or we get up
- "Os levantáis" - You lift yourselves up or you get up, plural
- "Se Levantan" - They lift themselves up or they get up
- 16There is a situation where the position of the Reflexive Personal Pronoun changes.This is the case when using the Gerund, which in Spanish is "ando" for "AR" verbs and "iendo" for "ER" and "IR" verbs. In English, it is the ending "ing", such as in the words going, talking, walking, etc. This is called the Progressive tense in English.
- 23Now, it's your turn.Try to conjugate some regular Reflexive verbs, and use them to create your own sentences. Try "Llamarse", which means "To call one's self" and "Ducharse", which means "To shower one's self". Follow the same rules that we've discussed in this video to create your own sentences. Then leave them in the comment section below, so you can share them with us.Advertisement
