Beginner Spanish Review Lesson 22 Practice using reflexive Spanish verbs Posted by on Apr 16, 2013 in Learning, Spanish Grammar, Spanish Vocabulary, Videos

¡Hola! ¿Qué tal?

Today we are going to practice using some useful reflexive Spanish verbs. What are reflexive Spanish verbs? Reflexive Spanish verbs are those verbs which end in “se” and where the object and subject of the sentence are the same.

Answers to all tasks involved in this lesson will be given at the end of the post and you can also follow a link with this post to watch the original theory video lesson on the same topic.

Practice using reflexive Spanish verbs

1. First let´s see if you recognize if a Spanish verb is reflexive or not. I will say a few verbs, some are reflexive and some are not. You only have to say if the verb is or not reflexive.


2. Next, let´s see if you know how to say these verbs in Spanish:

To wake up
To get dressed
To wash yourself
To have a shower
To put something on
To go to bed
To comb your hair

3. Let´s practice now conjugating reflexive Spanish verbs in the Present Tense. I will say a verb and a person (yo, tú, él, ella, usted, nosotros, vosotros, ustedes, or ellos) and I would like you to conjugate the verb in the correct way for the Present Tense. For example: Levantarse – nosotros: Nos levantamos:

Levantarse, tú
Acostarse, ellos
Ponerse, vosotros
Ducharse, usted
Lavarse, él
Quitarse, ustedes
Vestirse, ella
Despertarse, yo
Peinarse, nosotros

4. Finally, please answer the following questions conjugating the verb in the correct form and saying the time I indicate in English. For example: ¿A qué hora te acuestas? (eleven o´clock) You will have to answer: Me acuesto a las once.

¿A qué hora se peina Marta? (8:00)
¿A qué hora os levantáis? (7:00)
¿A qué hora te lavas el pelo? (8:30)
¿A qué hora se despiertan Pedro y Ana? (7:30)
¿A qué hora se visten ustedes? (8:15)
¿A qué hora se acuesta usted? (0:00)

This is all for today.

Remember that reflexive Spanish verbs are actions that we do to ourselves and you always have to use the reflexive pronoun before the verb. These pronouns won´t change when we are talking about the future or past, they will always be: me, te, se, nos, os, se.
