DIRECT OBJECT PRONOUN THE EASY WAY.

There are two ways to say the same thing both in the affirmative and negative, but there are rules on how and where to place the Direct Objects. LO, LOS, LA, LAS, ME, TE, NOS. I will explain them in an easy way with some examples and color coded.

  1. VAS A COMPRAR la crema bronceadora? (are you going to buy the sun screen protection?)

Sí, LA voy a comprar (yes, I’m going to buy it)

Sí,  voy a COMPRARLA. (yes, I’m going to buy it)

No, no LA voy a COMPRAR (no, I’m not going to buy it)

No, no voy a COMPRARLA. (no, I’m not going to buy it)

 

  1. VAS a COMPRAR el chocolate? (are you going to buy the chocolate?)

Sí,  voy a COMPRARLO. (yes, I’m going to buy it)

No, no LO voy a COMPRAR (no, I’m not going to buy it)

No, no voy a COMPRARLO (no, I’m not going to buy it)

 

  1. VAS A COMPRAR las cremas bronceadoras? (are you going to buy the sun screens protection?)

Sí, LAS voy a comprar (yes, I’m going to buy them)

Sí,  voy a COMPRARLAS. (yes, I’m going to buy them)

No, no LAS voy A COMPRAR. (No, I’m not going to buy them)

No, no voy A COMPRARLAS. (No, I’m not going to buy them)

 

  1. VAS A COMPRAR los chocolates? (did you buy the chocolates?)

Sí,  voy a COMPRARLOS. (yes, I’m going to buy them)

No, no LOS voy a COMPRAR (no, I’m not going to buy them)

No, no voy a COMPRARLOS (no, I’m not going to buy them)

 

  1. Me VAS A LLAMAR mañana? (are you going to call ME tomorrow?)

            Sí, TE voy a llamar (yes, I’m going to call you)

            Sí, voy a LLAMARTE (yes, I’m going to call you)

            No, no TE voy a llamar (No, I’m not going to call you.)

No, no voy a LLAMARTE. (No, I’m not going to call you.)

 

  1. NOS VAS A LLAMAR mañana? (are you going to call US tomorrow?)

            Sí,  LAS voy a llamar mañana. (yes, I’m going to call you. (plural female)

Sí, voy a LLAMARLAS. (yes, I’m going to call you. (plural female)

            No, no LAS voy a llamar. (NO,  I’m not going to call  you (plural female)

No, no voy a LLAMARLAS . (NO, I’m not going to call you (plural female)

 

Notice that the Direct Object LO, LA, LAS, LOS, ME, TE, NOS,  is always placed before the verbs as different words ( tevoy allamar) or  attach to the infinitive (VOY A LLAMARTE) (infinitive verbs ends in AR-ER-IR). In the example the verbs are COMPRAR and LLAMAR
