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.

This relates to:
Se promener, promener, marcher, aller à pied = To walk -

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!
