We just started learning about Reflexive Verbs. And We learned how they are supposed to be in the Past tense, but our focus right now is only on the Present tense. And for the present tense I am wondering whether I need agreement or not? Cause I believe agreement is only added in the Passe compose. And I don't need to conjugate with etre either, cause that's for the passe compose too. So I don't need a helping verb for the present tense?


Mon Horaire
(Basically I'm just telling about my morning routine) I have to conjgate in the present tense.

1. Je me réveille à 6h20.

2. Je me lève à 6h30.

3. Je me lave à 6h35.

4. Je me brosse les dents à 6h45

5. Je m'habille à 6h50.

6. Je mange le petit déjeuner à 7h00.

7. Je regarde la télé à 7h15.

8. Je vais à l'école à 8h00.

9. Je rentre à la maison à 3h00.

10. J'étudie à 4h00.

11. Je me déshabille à 8h00.

12. Je me couche à 8h30.

Don't forget l'Impératif (then the reflexive pronuns follow the verb and are connected to it with a hyphen in the affirmative imperative, te changing to toi. Yes, être is the helping verb/auxiliary in compound tenses: Passé Composé, Plus-que-parfait de l'Indicatif, Le Passé Antérieur, Le Futur Antéreieur, Le Conditionnel Passé, Le passé du Suibjonctif and Le Plus-que-parfait du Subjonctif.
