Wash your hands.
Lavarte los manos. Is this a reflexive verb "lavarte"? Would you then say "Te lavarse los manos"? If (lavar) is the verb (to wash), would "lavarte" mean "you wash"? Why wouldn't you just say "Tú lavar"?
HI puck, look at the conjugation tab, then look for the imperative. Lets see what you come up with.
Lavar is an infinitive. You need to conjugate the infinitive to "lava".
However, it's reflexive, because you are washing yourself (your hands are part of yourself). So the reflexive pronoun used for the second person (used when referred to tú) is te. Because it is a command in tu form, the te is attached to the end of "lava." Thus, we now have "lavate."
However, now the accents are messed up. In lava, the first a is accented naturally when you speak, so now we need to make sure we maintain the accentation. Write, "Lávate las manos."
Wow! Learning a second language is crazy! And, I'm still struggling with the first!
LAvate las manos.
