Remember, the indirect object answers the question "To whom?" or "For whom?" the action of the verb is performed. He gives María the book. To whom does he give the book? To María. IO=María He buys me flowers. For whom does he buy the flowers? For me. IO=me To identify the indirect object use our two guidelines: 1. The IO tells us where the DO is going. 2. The IO answers the question "to whom?" or "for whom" the action of the verb is performed. When a pronoun takes the place of the name of the indirect object, use the following pronouns: me (me) te (you-familiar) le (him, her, you-formal) nos (us) os (you-all-familiar) les (them, you-all-formal) In an affirmative statement with one verb, the indirect object pronoun comes immediately before the conjugated verb. Juan me compra un regalo. John buys me a gift. John buys a gift for me. Juan nos compra un regalo. John buys us a gift. John buys a gift for us.
