Direct Object Pronouns
Transcript of Direct Object Pronouns
Isabelle busca la tarea. Similarly, in Spanish pronouns are used as well: Mike is cleaning IT. In English, we can use pronouns to replace the object. The room is the direct object. For example, in the sentence:
Mike cleans his room.
What is Mike cleaning? To find the Direct object, you have to ask yourself... What is the (Subject) (Verb)? First: Direct Object Pronouns So we are going to put them together. Now you know how to use DOPs and IOPs. Direct objects are the objects that DIRECTLY receive the action of a verb. Indirect object pronouns are the objects that INDIRECTLY receive the action of a verb. IT replaces the room. Me
Los, Las < Look at the direct object and use the pronoun <associated with the gender of the object. < Verb Subject > Put the pronoun BETWEEN the subject and the verb! The sentence format is: Subject, DOP, Verb
The verb is conjugated to the SUBJECT! Isabelle la busca. /\
We use LA because "la tarea" is feminine. 2: Me juego los videojuegos 1: Jacob lo come.
2: Me los juego. 1: Clara tiene un regalo por yo. Let's try some more practice: Like DOPs, the pronoun goes right before the verb: For example:
Jacob trae la tarea por la profesora. Me
Les Like Direct objects, we use pronouns to replace Indirect objects: He is cleaning his room FOR his mother.
His mother is the indirect object. For example:
Mike cleans his room for his mother. What is the (Subject) (Verb) FOR? Next: Indirect Objects Subject and Verb > < DO We will use this later IO> Jacob brings the homework FOR HER. Jacob le trae la tarea. 2: David hace la tarea por el maestro. 3: Tu estudias por la clase de matematicas. 1: Clara me tiene un regalo.
2: David le hace la tarea
3: Tu le estudias. Kenneth trae los libros a usted. Now a practice sentence: If you are using Le or Les with any 3rd person DOP, use SE instead. Clarisse ME LO trae. When using both pronouns, put the indirect before the direct. IO
\/ Clarisse LE LO trae \/ Clarisse SE LO trae Never "le lo" Kenneth se los trae. Si, yo se los lavo. 4: Translate to Spanish Yes, I watched them for her. 3: Answer the question in English Did you wash the dishes for her? 2: Identify the components Tu lavas los platos para madre? 1: Translate the sentence to English. One must follow the steps. To answer questions using OPs: Did you wash the dishes for her? You = subject
Wash = verb
Dishes = DO
Her = IO Tu quieres ir al supermercado a mi? Now, the final practice: Example: Traerselo One last tip: When using an infinitive, put the verbs after it and add an accent. /\ accent! Si, me quiero irtelo. /\ Accent. The End. So, for an example: Subject > /\
