1. First, please translate the following sentences from Spanish to English:

Lo quiero comprar.
Pedro me ha llamado.
Lo leí ayer.
No lo creo.
Te voy a llamar esta tarde.

2. Now, please translate from English to Spanish:

Antonio called us yesterday.
I saw you last night.
I didn´t find her in the party.
I am going to give you this book.
He hasn´t told me anything.

3. Next, I am going to say a few sentences in Spanish using direct and indirect pronouns. Please, tell me if the pronouns are used correctly by saying “correcto” or “incorrect”:

Los he llamado.
Me se compré ayer.
Se lo dije.
Nunca me escuchas.
Este libro le leí ayer.

4. Now, I will give you some sentences in Spanish using two pronouns. Do you understand them?

Mi amigo me lo dijo.
Se lo compraré mañana.
Se la pedimos siempre.
Me lo trajo ayer.
No nos lo dijeron.

5. Finally, answer the following questions using the correct pronouns:

¿Vas a dar la pelota a tu hermana?
¿Nos lees el libro?
¿Les quieres enseñar tu casa?
¿Me puedes decir la hora?
¿Te puedo sugerir algo?

This is all for today.

Using direct and indirect pronouns correctly in Spanish is not an easy task. Try not to get frustrated with them, as it gets easier and easier the more you use them. I recommend you practice writing lots of sentences first and then you will find it easier when you try to use them in conversation.

¡Hasta pronto!
