Mirarte vs.Te Miras

Why is this mirarte instead of te miras? I hace seen sobre others like this, and I don’t understand why this form is correct and the other one is not.

I think it’s because “quieres” serves as an auxiliary/modal verb here which requires an infinitive verb afterwards (“Quieres mirar”).
In the grammar part (chapter 7) it’s explained that for reflexive verbs, the reflexive pronoun is put in front of conjugated verbs (te miras) but after an infinitive verb (mirarte). So, you’d say “Siempre te miras en el espejo” as mirar is conjugated, but “Quieres mirarte en este espejo” because mirar is in the infinitive form here. I hope that helps

Sure. They are “please sit down” and “I have to dry off,” which are “Siéntate por favor” and “Tengo que sacarme.”

Thanks for adding them. So, I think “Tengo que secarme” follows that rule as it requires an infinitive verb as well (same as in English – to dry off).
And for “Siéntate por favor” I guess it’s different for the imperative form. If you’d say, “you sit there” as a description it’s probably “Te sientas ahí”. But if it’s an order as “sit down”, then the form is different.

While there are a couple of sentences in the list that don’t follow that pattern, most of them do. Thanks again!

¿Quieres ___ en este espejo?

The answer to the question “¿Quieres ___ en este espejo?” is “mirarte.”

In this sentence, the verb used is “mirar,” which means “to look at.” The pronoun “te” is added to the verb to indicate that the action is being performed on the second person singular, which in this case is “tú” (you). “Te” is the second person singular reflexive pronoun for the object pronoun “ti” (you).

So, “mirarte” translates to “to look at yourself.” The sentence is asking if the person wants to look at themselves in the mirror.
