Indirect Object Pronouns Spanish  

Spanish Grammar Spanish Pronouns Indirect Object Pronouns

The indirect object indicates the person or thing receiving the action of the verb. They can be replaced by the indirect object pronouns below.

me to/for me
te to/for you (familiar)
le to/for you, to him, to her (formal)
nos to/for us
os tofor you guys
les to/for you all, to them

The indirect object answers the question “to whom?” or “for whom?”.

Mi novia me compró un reloj.
My girlfriend bought me a watch.

indirect object pronoun - me

Unlike English, Spanish also requires the indirect object pronoun when the indirect object is still present in the sentence.

Yo le di el dinero a Juan ayer.
I gave the money to Juan yesterday.

indirect object - Juan
indirect object pronoun - le (to him)

Other examples:

Pedro me da el dinero.
Pedro gives me the money.

¿Qué te dijo ella?
What did she tell you?

Ellos nos lo dieron.
They gave it to us.

Todos los dias le doy cuerda a mi reloj.
I wind my watch every day.

Indirect object pronouns can also go after the verb:
Déjame presentarte a Susana.
Let me introduce you to Susana.

Dile a tus amigos adónde vas si sales del hotel.
Tell your friends where you are going if you leave the hotel.
