THE MOST COMMON VERBS – INDIRECT OBJECT IN SPANISH FOR CONVERSATION

Today I am going to talk to you about Indirect object in Spanish complements (IOC) in order to continue learning Spanish in the best possible way. As in English indirect objects are very important and are usually used to answer questions to whom or what?

The particularity of the Spanish is that the indirect object complements (le) are slightly different from the direct object complements (lo, la).

As you can see the indirect object complement “le” does not agree with the gender. Namely, whether the personal pronoun él o ella, we will always use “le”.

Correct use of INDIRECT OBJECT in Spanish:

An indirect object in Spanish is the person or thing for whom an action is being or has been performed, usually indicated in English by the words “to” or “for.”

For instance:

indirect object in Spanish - spanish school in mexico city
Indirect object in Spanish - spanish school in Mexico City

As you can see in the image above, when you use the indirect pronouns le or les, you could be referring to anyone: you, him, her, them

To avoid confusion, I always use a verb + Something to Someone, so if this makes sense I know that this verbs it is an indirect object verb.

I created a list with the most common verbs in Spanish.
