Direct and Indirect Objects in Spanish

Warning: The grammar behind the examples in this lesson is quite hard to grasp especially for English speakers so we are just going to blast some sentences at you and hope your "Language Aquisition Device" can make some sense of it.

No explanations

I am intentionally not going to explain this lesson very well because we already have good tutorials for direct and indirect pronouns in Spanish and you can see links to them lower down.

We are going to expose your brain to some meaningful input and we hope you will start to make sense of it.

Like throwing spaghetti at the ceiling and hoping some of it sticks. 

This lesson will help you get accustomed to the concept of direct pronouns.

In this lesson we are going to use the verb "give" which is (dar) in Spanish.

There is a link to the full conjugation of dar below.

We are using "give" because it is a common transitive verb.

A transitive verb is a verb that accepts one or more objects. This contrasts with intransitive verbs, which do not have objects.

The sentences below are in the format we will use in this lesson:

I + gave+ you + a glass of wine

I + gave + it + to you

te + di + una copa de vino

te + la + di

The third line is a translation of the first line:

The fourth line is a translation of the second line:

 

The 4th line contains Spanish object pronouns:

Note: A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun.

I like it - (it is an object pronoun)
