When there are direct object, indirect object and reflexive pronouns in a sentence with a conjugated verb, the position of the pronouns will always be in front of the verb structure.
Have a look and listen to the following examples:
Notice how the pronouns are always placed in front and not after the verb, unlike in English, for example:
Los compré en Madrid NOT Compré los en Madrid
I bought them in Madrid.
Remember that in sentences with more than one pronoun there is a specific order you must follow:
- First the indirect object pronoun, then the direct object pronoun.
This order must be respected in sentences with a conjugated verb.
[se =indirect object] [lo =direct object]
