{30 minutes} Reflexive verbs in passé composé (p. 174)
  • Reflexive verbs act like verbs of motion: they all take être in the past tense!
  • One big difference from verbs of motion: the past participle agrees with the subject/reflexive pronoun only if there is not some other direct object (like the teeth being brushed, hair being combed, hands being washed) after the verb.
  • Examples:
    1. Male speaking: Je me suis levé.
    2. Female speaking: Je me suis levée.
    3. Tu t'es rasé?
    4. Marion s'est lavée.
    5. Marion s'est lavé les mains. ("The hands" are a direct object; participle does not change to feminine to agree with subject Marion.)
    6. Nous nous sommes habillés.
    7. Mes filles, vous vous êtes habillées? (extra e and s: feminine plural!)
    8. Les garçons se sont couchés a 10 h.
    9. Les filles se sont brossé les dents. ("The teeth" are direct object, so participle does not agree with subject.)
  • Do p. 174, Ex. 27 together in class
Les Devoirs: Reflexive verb practice: Write out p. 175, exercises 28, 29, and 30.
