Comprehensive, fun, easy-to-follow Spanish courses of video lessons (with notes), conversation audios (with transcripts), interactive exercises (with answers), and texts (with transcripts).

A video lesson from the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course which practices the 69 topics of the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Theory Course.

This is the 36th Spanish lesson in the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course. This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at pre-intermediate level with a native Spanish speaker.

In this interactive Spanish video lesson you have the chance to try out making sentences in Spanish using Spanish Reflexive Verbs with El Presente Continuo – The Spanish Present Continuous. This is the fourth video lesson in this series looking at the Spanish Present Continuous grammar tense El Presente Continuo. In previous lessons we looked at how to conjugate regular and irregular Spanish verbs with El Presente Continuo and how to make sentences using typical Spanish verbs that are not “reflexive”. Reflexive Spanish verbs end in “Se” and the object and subject of the sentence is the same. If you are not too sure about Reflexive Spanish Verbs I suggest you take a look at some of the video lessons in the Beginner and Beginner Practice courses which explain how to use them in detail.

Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.

This lesson practices the information taught in Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 36 from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.

Lesson notes:

Crea frases en Presente Continuo con la persona y el verbo reflexivo que te doy:

Create sentences using El Presente Continuo and the person and the Spanish reflexive verb I give you. For example, if I say “Yo/levantarse”, you should say “Me estoy levantando” or “Estoy levantándome” which means “I am getting up”. If I say “question” then you should make the intonation of a question. For example with “Tú/levantarse” (question) you should say “¿Estás levantándote?” or “¿Te estás levantando?” which means “Are you getting up?”:

1. Ellos / ducharse

2. Vosotros / despertarse (question)

3. Yo / peinarse

4. Nosotros / relajarse

5. Usted / levantarse (question)

6. Tú / lavarse los dientes (question)

7. Ustedes / lavarse el pelo (question)

8. Él / despertarse



1. Se están duchando / Están duchándose
2.¿Os estáis despertando? / ¿Estáis despertándoos?
3. Me estoy peinando / Estoy peinándome
4. Nos estamos relajando / Estamos relajándonos
5.¿Usted se está levantando? / ¿Están levantándose?
6.¿Te estás lavando los dientes? / ¿Estás lavándote los dientes?
7. ¿Ustedes se están lavando el pelo? / ¿Están lavándose el pelo?
8. Se está despertando / Está despertándose
