Why not convenzas?

Why not convenzas?

In the following sentence: "No dejes que Marcos te convenza. Es un embaucador."

Why is convenzas not correct? Doesn't the "te" trigger the tú conjugation?

Gracias, Augustine

Hola Augustine

the verb is conjugated in the "'él" form because it is "he" that is the subject of the sentence, not "you":

Don't let Marcos convince you ( = don't let that Marcos convinces you) 

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos

Inma
