Can anyone explain to me exactly why the phrase "Let me explain you something" is grammatically incorrect?

  • english -

    It looks correct, but it is not the way this idea is usually expressed. Perhaps it's because "explain" does not take an indirect object.

    The usual sentence is:

    Let me explain something to you.
