JP: El recado... this is a message, when you leave someone a message. El recado.
Fernando: Ok, and our last phrase is buen viaje.
JP: Literally good trip. So, Have a good trip. Buen viaje.

Lesson focus

Fernando: Ok, JP, what are we going to talk about in the grammar section?
JP: Well, it's time to talk about direct object pronouns.
Fernando: Did we hear any in the dialog?
JP: We heard one. The receptionist asked Jimmy if señor Rodríguez had his email, Jimmy says yes, he has it.
Fernando: Sí, lo tiene.
JP: Right. Sí, lo tiene. Tiene of course is the verb tener, and if you want it say he has it, you say lo tiene. That lo before the verb is the direct object pronoun. In this case it means it. He has it. Lo tiene.
Fernando: Ok, and it's lo, because el email is masculine and singular.
JP: Exactly. that direct object pronoun is going to agree in gender and number with the person or thing it replaces. So depending on gender and number, it can be lo, la, los, or las. And remember it always goes before the conjugated verb. So I can say Jimmy kissed her.
Fernando: Jimmy la besó.
JP: Or I can make it plural and say "Jimmy las besó."
Fernando: Ooh, Jimmy kissed them. Nice work, Jimmy.
JP: You can change the person and number too, you can say Jimmy kissed you...
Fernando: Jimmy te besó.
JP: Jimmy kissed us.
Fernando: Jimmy nos besó. This is a little weird and a lot of information.
JP: You're right. Let's put all of the direct object pronouns into a neat little chart in the lesson notes, you can find the chart and the lesson notes at this lesson's page at our website, which is www.spanishpod101.com. How about that?
Fernando: Sounds like a plan.

Outro

JP: Before we go, we want to tell you about the voice recording tool, which you can find in the premium learning center. If you have access to the premium learning center, just find the voice recording tool, and you can record your voice with a click of a button, and then play it back just as easily. That way you can compare your pronunciation to the pronunciation of the native speakers.
Fernando: I guess it’s time to go!
JP: Hasta luego.
Fernando: ¡Adiós!

Hola Jeffrey Swett,


Thank you for your comment.

The indirect object is "el". To find the indirect object you need to ask yourself "who?".

Sigamos practicando!

In sample sentence number 1, "nos" seems to me the indirect object, not the direct object.

Hola Andrew,

"yo no lo tengo" is the correct way. 👍

Si quiero decir el negativo pero usar todavía el "direct object pronoun", por ejemplo "í do not have it", ¿es mejor que decir yo no lo tengo o yo lo no tengo?

(¿y esta pregunta debería en el condicional?)

Creo que la palabra padre y padrisimo significa " cool " en Mexico ...por ejemplo " que padre "...how cool

I think the word padre and padrisimo means cool in Mexico..for example que padre how cool
