Direct Object Pronouns: menos teos lolos lalas Me = menos = us Te = youos = you guys (Spain) Lo = him, it, you (male,formal)Los = them, you guys La = her, it, you (female, formal)Las = them (female), you gals (female)
Direct objects show who or what receives the action of the verb. To avoid repetition, use a direct object pronoun. Ex: I am watching the game. = Yo veo el partido. I am watching it. = Yo LO veo.
1.Put the D.O. pronouns BEFORE a conjugated verb. los Ex: Yo los pego. = I hit them. me Berguita me besa. = Berguita kisses me.
Placement rules: 2. They can also be ATTACHED to an infinitive, OR they can go BEFORE the entire verb phrase when there is an infinitive. Ex: I am going to hit them! = ¡Yo los voy a pegar! OR ¡Voy a pegarlos !
Affirmative Informal Mandatos (commands) ***First, you have to think if the verb you want to use is one of the “EASY EIGHT.” If it is one of the “EASY EIGHT”, simply use that form: Decir di (say, tell) Tener ten (have) Venir ven (come) Poner pon (put, place, set) Ir ve (go) Ser sé (be) Hacer haz (do) Salir sal (leave)
***If the verb is NOT one of the “EASY EIGHT”, use the “Drop the “S” Rule.” : Take the “tú” form of the present tense and drop the “s”. Yes, it’s that easy! Speak Spanish! = ¡Habla español! Run, Forrest, Run! = ¡Corre, Forest, corre! Play Soccer! = ¡Juega al fútbol!
Summary: Steps to an affirmative TÚ command: 1. Determine if the verb is on the “Easy Eight” list. If it is, just use the “Easy Eight” form. 2. If the verb is NOT on the “Easy Eight” list, take the tú form and drop the “s.”
SECRET HINT: You could also just use the “ÉL, ELLA, USTED” form. It’s the same as the “tú” form minus the “s.” Tricky-tricky
