Hey Jacko - think of the pronouns before the verb as grouped together with that verb. So for this sentence, il nous lit un lettre, the nous comes before the verb, so think of it as a unit "nous lit". That unit is "to us he reads", or backwards from English "he reads to us". The same can help you with longer sentences that contain multiple pronouns, so you don't get confused :) That's what I do - hope it helps!
