Indirect Object Pronouns

Here are the forms for the indirect object pronoun in Spanish. Notice how the forms for the first and second persons are the exact same as the forms for the direct object pronouns. Remember that indirect object pronouns answer the questions "To whom?", "For whom?", "To what?", and "For what?".

  singular plural
first person me nos
second person te os
third person le les

Indirect object pronouns in Spanish are placed before the conjugated verb, and also before the direct object pronoun (if the sentence has both a direct object and indirect object pronoun).
