Besides the verb "to be" and gender in general, I think this is one of the most common mistakes people make when they are learning Spanish "Possessive adjectives VS direct/indirect object pronouns", first let me introduce you to possessive pronouns in Spanish:


Possessive adjectives:

Singular Noun Plural Noun Translation Example

mi mis my mi hijo / mis hijos / my children

tu tus your tu perro / tus perros / your dog

su sus their, your, his, her , its su caramelo / sus caramelos / their candy

nuestro/a nuestros/as our nuestro recuerdo / nuestros recuerdos / our memories

vuestro/a vuestros/as your vuestra madre / vuestras madres / your mother


Now, lets see the direct and indirect object pronouns in Spanish:


Direct and indirect object pronouns:

Direct Object Indirect Object Translation Example

Pronoun Pronoun

me me me él me trajo comida / he brought me food

te te you te lo dije / I told you

lo, la le him, her, it, you se lo dije / le dije / I told him

nos nos us él nos trajo comida / he brought us food

os os you os espero / I'll wait for you

los, las les them, you se los dije / les dije / I told them


They look similar right? But so different...
