If you had a good English class explaining "direct objects" you are half way there! I'm not sure if I should begin at the VERY beginning, or. . . . .
DIRECT OBJECTS in French:
me (m') = me
te (t') = you, familiar & singular
le (l') = him, it (masc. sing. object)
la (l') = her it (any fem. sing. object)
se (s') = himmself, herself (these are reflexive pronouns which you probably have not had yet)
nous = us
vous = you, singular & formal or plural
les = them (people OR things)
se (s') = themselves (reflexive)
They go BEFORE the verb of which they are the direct object (except in affirmative commands) to PLAY SAFE, but
They go directly after the verb (in affirmative commands) and are linked to it by a hyphen (me and te change to MOI and TOI after the verb.)
In the negative imperative (command) the object pronouns are again in front of the verb.
When you get to indirect-object commands, let me know bcause some verbs that LOOK like they would take in indirect, do not. I won't explain that here because for the moment, you are only concerned with the d.o.
When you get to the past tense (passé composéo) there is yet another thing to learn! Onw step at a time! You WILL get there!
Bonne chance = feel free to ask any other question you might have.
EXAMPLES: Regular sentences:
Elle la ferme. (la porte)
Me voici. Les voilà. (those 2 words always take the direct object)
Ils ne l'étudient pas. (le livre)
Ne me regardez pas
Ne l'essayons pas
Sra (aka Mme)
You are entirely welcome! I just hope it helps! Sra (aka Mme)
