MINI LESSON: REFLEXIVE VERBS
A reflexive verb is one in which the action is both executed and received by the subject. Since the subject also receives the action, an additional pronoun
is needed. This is called the reflexive pronoun.
Susana se despierta y se baña a las 7:10 de la mañana. Luego se peina, se maquilla y se viste. A las 12:05 Susana come y toma un refresco. A las 5:30 sale del trabajo y se dirije a su casa. A las 7 se arregla y sale a cenar con su novio. Regresa a su casa a las 10:30, y se acuesta a las 11:15 de la noche.
(”se”, meaning: “herself” in English).
