Get more familiar with the Italian verbi riflessivi. Quiz for everyone and podcast for members only.
The first time you studied the verbi riflessivi, the Italian “reflexive verbs”, you probably practiced using tenses of the indicativo, such as the presente, passato prossimo or imperfetto. Today we are going to set the bar a bit higher and practice the verbi riflessivi using more complex verbs and tenses.
Let’s first review the pronouns, pronomi riflessivi. Every subject pronoun (io, tu, lui etc…) is associated with a reflexive pronoun (mi, ti, si etc…). I take for granted that you saw this before. If not, have a look at reflexive verbs for beginners.
All the tenses and examples down below, and the final quiz, are for intermediate to advanced learners. If you are a beginner with some knowledge, give the quiz a try and see where you can improve.
Hopefully the examples and the quiz below will help you to use the verbi riflessivi more properly. Please give it a try and let me know if you have questions. Alla prossima!
