So, the directions are :
Rewrite the following sentences using a Direct Object pronoun.

'Visitamos a Teresa el mes pasado.'

I know it means something like... we visited Teresa last month.
And I know that the direct objects are something like... me, te , lo/la, nos ... and los/las

Thanks for any help this same day!

Okay, I think i´ve worked past that question okay. Another problem I have is answering the following question. I think what I have is right, but I´m doing this on the computer, which grades me for my teacher. The computer says I´m wrong. Can you just help me figure out my problem?

The question is :Escribes composiciones en la clase de español?

My answer: Sí, yo la escribo en la clase de español.

Am I answering this using the Direct Object Pronoun incorrectly?

Composiciones is plural. Make your pronoun plural smile

Oh... I missed that! Thank you!

Yes, I want to use words like her, him, and it. One question about Direct object in general, I need to rewrite this sentence to use Direct object, right?

If you feel that answering this would be cheating, just let me know.

Thanks for the help!

Let me give you a couple of examples:

Vi a tu hermano - Lo vi
Vi a tus padres - Los vi

The direct object is "a Teresa", and this is what each pronoun means:

Me = a mí (to me)
Te = a ti (to you)
Le = a él / a usted (to him / to you Sir)
La = a ella (to her)
Nos = a nosotros (to us)
Os = a vosotros (to you guys)
Les = a ellos / a ustedes (to them / to you Sirs)

Now just chose the right pronoun... for "a Teresa" (to her).

Did you want it rewritten with different words like, "Nos fuimos donde Teresa el mes pasado" or with the same verb: "visitar"?

I would like to use the same verb, visitar.
