Using "la" as IO or DO?

Using "la" as IO or DO?

"La" is only used as the feminine for a direct object, correct? So in this example from the lesson the first "her" (se) is the indirect object of "dar" but the the second "her" is a direct object of "ver"? 

Se lo daré cuando la vea.

I will give it to her when I see her.

If the second "her" were an indirect object, it would be "le", right? For example, is this correct?


Se lo daré cuando le hable.
I will give it to her when I talk to her.


Thank you!

Hola Melissa,

That is spot on!

...when I see her = cuando la vea (ver a alguien= to see someone; someone here would be a direct object -> la (fem.) lo (masc)

...when I talk to her = cuando le hable (hablar a alguien = to speak to someone; someone here would be an indirect object -> le (for feminine or masculine)

Saludos,

Inma
