Vous êtes censés ________ sur le trottoir. You're supposed to walk on the sidewalk.. You're supposed to walk on the sidewalk.

You are supposed to walk (ones/yourself) on the side walk. Why is the use of "se promener" incorrect? ie. Vous êtes censés te promene sur le trottoir.

Hi Stephen,

This is how the sentence goes if you were to conjugate it :

Je suis censé/e me promener ...

Tu es censé/e te promener...

Il/elle/on est censé/e se promener...

Nous sommes censés nous promener...

Vous êtes censé/s vous promener...

Ils/elles sont censés/es se promener...

But I suspect they wanted you to use the verb 'marcher'??

Hope this helps!
