GRAMMAR:

Indirect Objects are the part of the sentence that describes who the action is being done to. For example, in the sentence “I gave the ticket to the man” the phrase “to the man” is the indirect object because it tells us who the ticket was given to. The indirect object pronouns are the words that take the place of the noun. The pronouns in Spanish are provided as follows:

meto me
teto you
leto you (formal), to him, to her
nosto us
osto you (plural)
lesto you (plural, formal), to them

Examples:

Note: The word “le” is frequently ambiguous in Spanish since it could mean “to you,” “to him” or “to her.” Spanish speakers clarify the ambiguity by redundantly repeating the indirect object. For instance, “Yo le digo la verdad a María” literally means “I to her tell the truth to Maria.” This may sound strange to an English speaker at first, but it flows in oral speech and does away from the ambiguity.

El hombre me explica el problema.The man explains the problem to me.
Yo te muestro las fotos.I show the photos to you.
Te digo todo que sé.I tell you all that I know.
