  5. "She sees him."

"She sees him."

Translation:Elle le voit.

December 28, 2012



Is "elle voit lui" unacceptable? What about "elle lui voit"?


The form of pronouns works as follows:

"il" is subject; "le" is direct object; "lui" is indirect object.

As to the order of words, the direct object pronoun is placed before the word: "je vous aime" (good mnemonic, isn't it?)

"Elle lui voit des qualit├ęs" means "she sees qualities in him"
