Order of object pronouns - Easy Learning Grammar Spanish
- Two object pronouns are often used together in the same sentence; for example: he gave me them or he gave them to me. In Spanish, you should always put the indirect object pronoun BEFORE the direct object pronoun.
|Ana os lo mandará mañana.||Ana will send it to you tomorrow.|
|¿Te los ha enseñado mi hermana?||Has my sister shown them to you?|
|No me lo digas.||Don’t tell me (that).|
|Todos estaban pidiéndotelo.||They were all asking you for it.|
|No quiere prestárnosla.||He won’t lend it to us.|
- You have to use se instead of le (to him, to her, to you) and les (to them, to you), when you are using the object pronouns lo, la, los, or las.
|Se lo di ayer.||I gave it to him/her/you/them yesterday.|
|Se las enviaré.||I’ll send them to him/her/you/them.|Key points PreviousNext
