An easy rule for remembering how to find the indirect object is by asking for who/whom/what the action is being done for.

Or who is receiving the benefit of the main action

Let’s clarify this point by looking at a specific example:

  • He cooks the food for his wife  – Él cocina la comida para su esposa

Now we ask, who does he cook the food for? The answer is his wife (for her).

  • He cooks food for her – Él le cocina la comida

Now you know how to find indirect pronouns.

Isn’t that complicated, is it? Step by step everything is starting to make sense! Let’s keep going…
