"Docteur, je me sens nettement mieux."

Translation:Doctor, I clearly feel better.

Why do you put 'me' there?


In French "to feel" (refering to someone's health) is "se sentir", which is a reflexive verb, so you need to use a the reflexive pronoun. In English it's simply "I feel better", but the French version would translate into "I feel myself better" (which is not correct in English)
