I let myself down or I let down myself? Hi ! I've a question and I hope you could help me, what is the correct way to say "me defraudé", "I let myself down" or "I let down myself"? Thanks

"I let down myself." sounds very awkward and unnatural. "Myself" should come between "let" and "down". :)

I let myself down

Hello Susana, 'let down' is a phrasal verb and generally if you have a pronoun - (a word to replace a noun) it goes between the verb and the preposition. I have a video about phrasal verbs you may find useful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UVgTCILUbs&list=PLIcNItpI5Y7CByenUL965_JYRKIeFp0Ch&index=3 Best wishes Bob
