  6. Direct object pronouns are the words that replace the direct object, so that we don't say things like 'Marie was at the bank today. When I saw Marie I smiled.''

    • Me / m' ------- me
    • Te / t' ---------- you
    • Le / l' --------- him, it
    • La / l' --------- her, it
    • Nous --------- us
    • Vous --------- you
    • Les --------- them

    • Le / l' --------- him, it
    • La / l' --------- her, it
    • Nous --------- us
    • Vous --------- you
    • Les --------- them
  8. Like indirect object pronouns, French direct object pronouns are placed in front of the verb.

  13. When a direct object precedes a verb conjugated into a compound tense such as the passe compose, the past participle has to agree with the direct object. See agreement lesson (section B)

  14. If you are having trouble deciding between direct and indirect objects, the general rule is that if the person or thing is preceded by a preposition, that person is an indirect object.
