2 Reviewing Direct Object Pronouns
On previous chapters we have learned about Direct Object Pronouns. They are: Lo, La, Los, Las, Me, Te, Nos They substitute the direct object (NOT THE SUBJECT) on a sentence. They always come BEFORE the verb unless there are two verbs together in the sentence. They answer the question “What?” or “Who”. Ex: Maria compra la camiseta/Maria la compra. Frida colecciona los animales de peluche/ Frida los colecciona. Marcos llama a Carlos y yo. / Marcos nos llama.

3 Indirect Object Pronouns
In English … The Indirect Object follows the verb just as a Direct Object does. But the function of an Indirect Object is different. Instead of being the object of the action of the verb as a Direct Object is, the Indirect Object is the person or thing to whom or for whom the action is performed - I write a letter (direct object) to my friend (indirect object) - I bought a sweater (direct object) for Jennifer (indirect object) - She borrowed a CD (direct object) from me (indirect object)

4 Continuing… Let's look at an example:
I give a ticket to the crazed driver. Let's take a look at the components of the sentence: I the subject (the person for whom we conjugate the verb) give the verb [transitive] (transfers action to an object -requires an object) a ticket direct object (receives the action of TO GIVE) - it's what is given. (to) the crazed driver the indirect object (this is to whom the ticket is given) Now, let’s substitute the indirect object with a pronoun: I give him a ticket

5 In Spanish … Like in English an IOP tells to whom or for whom an action is performed. They are used to replace or accompany an indirect object noun. They are: Let’s look at some examples: - Mi abuela no me permitia comer galletas para el almuerzo. - Su mamá siempre le daba regalos (a Juanito). - Yo les compraba regalos (a los niños). - Nos enviaba cartas todos los veranos. ME (to / for) me NOS (to/for) us TE (to/for) you LE (to/for) him, her , you LES (to/for) them, you all

6 Practicando… Underline the Indirect Object and substitute it with a pronoun. Maria da el dinero a Juan. __________________________ Juan compró flores para Maria. ______________________ Luana escribía cartas para Mario y yo. ____________________ Alissa llamaba a mi. ___________________________ Cristina daba dulces a los niños. _____________________ Los profesores daban exámenes difíciles a los estudiantes. ____________________________________________ Compramos regalos lindos para Lucas. _____________________________________________
