anonymous asked:

how do you figure out when you use pronouns like lo, se, le etc.

Direct Objects, Indirect Objects, & Reflexives


Direct Object Pronouns

me = me

te = you

lo / la = him, it / her, it

los / las = them

nos = us

os = you all [vosotros]


Indirect Object Pronouns

me = (to) me

te = (to) me

le = (to) him / her

les = (to) them

nos = (to) us

os = (to) you all [vosotros]


Reflexive Pronouns

me = (to) myself

te = (to) yourself

se = (to) himself / herself

se = (to) themselves

nos = (to) ourselves

os = (to) ourselves


Most of the pronouns like me, te, nos, os have overlap.

The lo/la, los/las, le, les, and se all apply differently to different subjects.

Direct Objects 3rd person require you correspond the gender and singularity/plurality.

Indirect Objects 3rd person require you correspond the singularity/plurality.

Reflexives 3rd person is just se across the board but whether it’s “himself/herself” or “themselves” depends on the verb; se ducha would mean “he/she takes a shower” but then se duchan would mean “they take a shower”. Reflexives need the verbs to correspond to the pronoun to make it reflexive.
