    [reveal-answer q=”94631″]Pronombres de objeto indirecto y objeto directo usados juntos[/reveal-answer]
    [hidden-answer a=”94631″]

    When using indirect and direct object pronouns together in the same sentence, the indirect one goes first. The two pronouns must stay beside each other, and the usual object pronoun placement rules apply.

    (Subject) + (no) + indirect object pronoun + direct object pronoun + verb etc.

    Third-person object pronouns used together

    An interesting thing happens when two third-person object pronouns are used together (e.g. “give it to them” or “receive them from her”): both the indirect and the direct object pronouns in the third person start with the letter “L”. For purely phonetic reasons (and not meaning to cause confusion with the reflexive pronoun!), the indirect object pronoun in those situations changes to “se”.
