She told me herself?
 
In Spanish how would you say something like, "She told me herself that [...]."? Would you use se anywhere, or...?

You could say, "Ella misma me dijo [que....]."

Very closer Nico's answer.:)

Nico's answer is right. One doesn't use "se" because it's not something she does to herself, but it's rather herself you're talking about, so "ella misma" is the expression needed here.

They are all correct but it can also be....

-Ella misma me lo dijo....

¡Muchas gracias a todos! :applause:

Little nuance with Elaina's right suggestion:

She told me that herself.
Ella misma me lo dijo.

She told me herself that... (like in "she told me herself that she was getting married")
Ella misma me dijo que... (como en "ella misma me dijo que se va a casar")
