Present Perfect Reflexive Spanish Verb Conjugation
Now we’ll take a look at Spanish reflexive have verbs. Just like with direct objects, the reflexive pronouns always go in-front of have verbs.
See if you can guess how to say the following Spanish verb phrases:
|I have forgotten||Me he olvidado|
|They have gotten angry||Se han enojado|
|We have complained||Nos hemos quejado|
Before we continue, we need to cover a few little side notes. First, I wanted to remind you that to say “She has worried about me” would be “Se ha preocupado por mí”. Remember that in this case, we use “por” instead of “de” to mean “about”. The next reminder is also something you learned in the reflexive verb section. When you use the verb “despedirse” and add a person afterward, you need to add on the word “de” for example, to say “He has said goodbye to her” in Spanish you would say “Se ha despedido de ella”. Finally, our last reminder is when you put a word or phrase after “darse cuenta”, you also have to put “de” on afterward, for example to say “I haven’t realized that”, in Spanish you would say “no me he dado cuenta de eso”.
Here are a couple of vocabulary words we need to learn for this exercise.
|The first is the word “ever” which is||“alguna vez”|
|The other is the word “lately” which is||“últimamente”|
