Direct Object Pronouns – Today’s French

Les pronoms d’objets directs

Look at this sentence:

  • Il prend le téléphone.
    • Il is the acting part of the sentence. It’s the subject of the verb
    • prend is the verb, the action itself
    • le téléphone is the receiver part of the action. It’s the object of the verb

When you replace le téléphone by a pronoun, a word replacing the noun, that pronoun keeps the same object function in the sentence. le téléphone is masculine and singular. The masculine singular pronoun is LE for our sentence.

  • Il LE prend.


You will use an object pronoun when you need to replace the object of a sentence, most often in order not to repeat the same words too often.

  •  La petite Tour Eiffel en plastique bleu est sur la table. Anne prend la Tour Eiffel.
  • La petite Tour Eiffel en plastique bleu est sur la table. Anne la prend.
  1. Je les prends.
  2. Tu m’attends.
  3. Elle nous entend.
  4. Nous vous envoyons le paquet.
  1. I’m taking them.
  2. You’re waiting for me.
  3. She hears us.
  4. We’re sending you the package.
