What is a Reflexive Verb – A1

Reflexive verbs are those where the subject and the object are the same.

The following example is not a reflexive: I have a house  becauseI” – is the subject  and        “a house” – is the direct object. Since they are different “have” is not a reflexive action.

However, if we say:I wash myself” both “I” and “myself” refer to the same person and therefore we have a reflexive action.

In Spanish that would be translated as:Yo me lavo
