Spanish Indirect Object Pronouns
Another crucial part of the Spanish language, Spanish indirect object pronouns can take a little while to fully understand as we don’t have direct English translations (we might say “to him” or “to them”, where Spanish uses just one word “le”, or “les”, for example). It can also trip learners up when Spanish uses different words for direct pronouns and indirect pronouns, where in English we would use just one. It’s also used in all sorts of cases where we wouldn’t consider doing the same in English (such as with the verb “gustar“). In this post, we clarify how to form and place the Spanish indirect object, and then we explore its various uses.
