Reflexive verbs in French are verbs which mean an action done to oneself, for example, laver means 'to wash', but se laver means 'to get washed' or literally ‘to wash oneself’.
That's why in the infinitive form the verb has se in front of it and this needs to change as we talk about other people doing the action just as in English – he has a wash/he washes himself or we are having a wash/we wash ourselves.
Reflexive verbs follow the normal formation patterns and many are regular -er verbs. They just have an extra pronoun.
Here’s an example with se laver in the present tense:
|Je me lave||I wash myself|
|Tu te laves||You wash yourself|
|Il/elle/on se lave||He washes himself/she washes herself/we wash ourselves|
|Nous nous lavons||We wash ourselves|
|Vous vous lavez||You wash yourselves|
|Ils/elles se lavent||They wash themselves|
Remember that me, te, se become m', t', s' before a vowel or silent -h:
