Five reflexive verbs for language practice

Normally, English doesn't tend to use reflexive verbs as much as other languages, such as French or Spanish, do. There are, however, five reflexive verbs that you might find useful, especially if you're studying to take an exam:

  • familiarize yourself with a concept/topic
  • say something to yourself    (also possible: tell yourself something)
  • remind yourself of something
  • convince yourself of something

Notice how you use prepositions (with/to/of) to connect another concept with the verb!
