¿Me entiendes? Do you understand me? It was "whom" do you understand? Me

¿Nos entiendes? Do you understand us? Again, "whom do you understand? Us

To answer the question:

Te entiendo. I understand you. Whom do I understand? You

or No te entiendo. I do not understand you.

¿Practicas los verbos? Do you practice what? los verbos

Los practico. I practice them.

¿Tienes el libro de texto?

Lo tengo. I have it. What do I have? it

Directo objects precede a conjugated verb.

Buena suerte....

It's quite simple really. What you have to do first is think of the gender of the word you are speaking. For example:

Tienes el libro? El libro is masculine therefore the direct object pronoun is lo. It would be la if the object were female. Los is masculine plural. Las is feminie plural.

Then all you have to do is change the person to you. In this case tienes because tengo.

Your answer: Si, lo tengo.

It always comes before the verb.

Another example:

Me entiendes?

Si, lo/la entiendo.


Practicas los verbos?

Los = masculine plural.

Si, los practico.

Once you get the hang of it, it becomes quite natural. Good luck smile
