The rules:

  • A pronominal verb is a verb which has a reflexive pronoun, that is, a pronoun referring back to its subject. These verbs are easily recognized by the pronoun se before the infinitive: se lever, se laver, se promener, etc.
  • In the passé composé, pronominal verbs are conjugated with être as their auxiliary, the reflexive pronoun (me, te, se, nous, vous, se) precedes the auxiliary.
  • In the negative, the ne precedes the reflexive pronoun and the pas follows the auxiliary.
