03 Tú Commands + Pronouns

So we’ve been talking about tú commands: the affirmative commands & the negative commands, and something we’ll have to think about also is what to do with those pesky pronouns: direct object pronouns (me, te, lo, la, nos, *os, los, las), indirect object pronouns (me, te, le, nos, *os, les), and reflexive pronouns (me, te, se, nos, *os, se).

Check out these videos with an explanation and practice as well!

In the Practice 1 video, there is the following example: “Bring it (water) to the gentleman.” Since water is masculine, shouldn’t the translation be “traéselo” instead of “traésela”?

Good question. This throws a lot of people off.

“agua” is actually feminine. We use “el” because the “a” sound in “la agua” would get lost.

I explain it further in this video:
