Spanish Grammar: La, lo
It, them

This is what language would look like without pronouns:
My sister has two kids. My sister lives in Mexico. My parents talked to my sister yesterday, my sister said my sister was coming to visit.
Enter pronouns:
My sister has two kids. She lives in Mexico. My parents talked to her yesterday, she said she was coming to visit.
Thank you pronouns!
Back to Spanish:
In level 1.0, we learned that inanimate objects have a gender in Spanish. They are either feminine or masculine and so are the pronouns.
I like this T-shirt, should I buy it? → Me gusta esta sudadera, ¿la compro?
I like this coat, should I buy it? → Me gusta este abrigo, ¿lo compro?
ArticlePronoun (direct object)
Compro la sudadera.La compro.
Compro el abrigo.Lo compro.
Compro las camisas.Las compro.
Compro los zapatos.Los compro.
