Reflexive verbs are verbs that use reflexive pronouns because the action “reflects” on the subject. These verbs are conjugated the same way as traditional verbs, they simply need the pronoun before the conjugated verb.

  • Reflexive verbs are used in everyday Italian, and for this reason it’s important to memorize reflexive pronouns which are required when using reflexive verbs.
  • Common reflexive verbs include: “svegliarsi”, “vestirsi”, “prepararsi”, and “divertirsi”.
