A French reflexive verb is USUALLY something that one does to oneself.  Imagine you’re looking into a mirror and you see your reflection, and you can remember why they’re called “reflexive verbs”.  There are also plenty of idiomatic reflexive verbs.  You have no idea why they’re reflexive, and the literal translation doesn’t make sense.  You just have to memorize them, and the best way to get the feel of them is to start using them in conversation (I’ve written a list of them for you below). The infinitive of French reflexive verbs looks a little different than regular infinitives.  Have you ever seen an infinitive with “se” in front of it, for example, “se coucher”?  The “se” is a reflexive pronoun, and it will always be “se” in the infinitive form.  However, when you conjugate the verb the reflexive pronoun must agree with the subject.  Here’s an example of the conjugation of the verb “se coucher – to go to bed”  (literally it means “to put oneself to bed”). Watch the following video tutorial.  Useful links, exercises and answers are located beneath the video.
