Order of Object Pronouns

UtterBug Background

Two object pronouns are often used together in the same sentence; for example: he gave me them or he gave them to me. In Spanish, you should always put the indirect object pronoun BEFORE the direct object pronoun.

Indirect Direct
te la
nos los
os las


Spanish often uses pronouns in combination with nouns in a way that seems redundant to English native speakers. Note the use of indirect object pronouns as well as noun direct objects in the following:

I've given it to your boyfriend.Se lo he dado a tu novio.
I'm going to tell my brothers and sistersLes voy a decir a mis hermanos



  • When combining two object pronouns, put the indirect object pronoun before the direct object pronoun.
  • Use se as the indirect object pronoun rather than le or les when there is more than one object pronoun.

  • So lo di ayer =I gave it to him/her/you/them yesterday.

  • Sa las enviare =I'll send them to him/her/you/them.

  • Ana os lo mandara manana. =Ana will send it to you tomorrow.

  • Te los ha ensenado mi hermana? =Has my sister shown them to you?

  • No me lo digas =Don't tell me (that).

  • Todos estaban pidiendotelo. =They were all asking you for it.

  • No quiere prestarnosla =He won't lend it to us.

  • que no es justo =That it isn't Fair
