French Direct and Indirect Object Pronouns
This is the French lesson for you if you find yourself confused as to whether you should use LUI or LE to mean HIM, or LUI or LA to mean HER, or LEUR or LES to mean THEM. We'll also talk about how to say IT in French, and you'll learn how to do all of this in three tenses (negation included).
This lesson is included in my BUNDLED FRENCH LESSONS.
Step 1: Watch the 23 minute video grammar lesson about direct and indirect object pronouns. Even if you don't really know what they are in English, by the end of this lesson you'll have a much better understanding. Before you watch the lesson, be sure to download your 2 page lesson guide where you'll find all of the rules and examples given in the lesson. You'll even get a few helpful hints, and it will be a handy guide to add to your study resources.
Step 2: You will have four online multiple choice quizzes to take. Each quiz has ten questions, and they are the same in each quiz EXCEPT that the quizzes are in three different tenses: present tense, passé composé, and futur proche. The fourth quiz combines all 3 tenses to see if you remember where to place the pronouns in the sentences before moving on to the practice cards. I think the repetition will help you as you figure everything out before the next big challenge!
Step 3: Now it's time to really challenge yourself. I'm including a set of 75 practice cards (no multiple choice answers) to challenge you in 3 tenses (and with negation)! Don't worry, an answer key is included so that you can easily check your work. I'm including a paper free version that you can open up on your device as well as a version with 4 cards per page that you can print and cut out in case you enjoy being away from the screen sometimes. You'll be able to use this resource anywhere to truly master French direct and indirect object pronouns. Here's what some of the cards look like:

Bonjour! I'm Jennifer, and I’m an American French teacher living in the South of France. My native language is English, and I speak French fluently. I love to travel, and have led guided tours in 15 countries in Western Europe with my former students from the United States. I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and French, then taught French for a year and moved to France for a year before pursuing and earning a Master of Arts degree in French. I taught French at Saint Louis University High School, a Jesuit college preparatory school for young men, for 14 years. In the summer of 2013 I relocated to France with my family, and spent the summer working as Dean of l’Académie de France in Montpellier, a French immersion program for teenagers from around the world. A while before relocating to France, I began teaching French online via Skype. I am now teaching French online full time and I also give immersion classes and guided city visits in both languages in Béziers, France.
It’s my job to guide you and help you along on your journey to learn French. Learning should be fun, and I will make sure that enjoy yourself as you improve your listening, writing, reading, and most importantly your speaking skills. Over the years I have developed many creative strategies to guarantee your progress. All students have different learning styles, different strengths and weaknesses, and different levels. One of my first jobs as your teacher is to provide you with an approach that will suit your learning style so that you will get the most out of your classes as possible.
