Double Object Pronouns #1

You have already learned that direct and indirect object pronouns replace nouns. You will now learn how to use these pronouns together.

Indirect Object Pronouns Direct Object Pronouns
me nos lo los
te os +
le (se) les (se) la las

►When object pronouns are used together, the indirect object pronoun precedes the direct object pronoun:

"El camarero me muestra el menu ► El camarero ME LO muestra"

►The indirect object "le" and "les" always changes to "se" when followed by "la, las, lo and los:

"Le pedimos un café ► Se lo pedimos.

►Because "se" has multiple meanings, you can clarify to whom the pronoun refers by adding "a usted, a él, a ella, a ustedes, a ellos, or a ellas":

"El sombrero?► Carlos se lo vendió a ella."
