Écouter takes direct object pronoun?
From the lesson: J'aime l'écouter. (I like to listen to him.)
Écouter = to listen to
Isn't this use of 'him' an example of an indirect object, and therefore, "J'aime lui écouter", correct?
Unless écouter isn't a verb that's usually by à, but it sure seems that it is.
This question relates to:French lesson "Position of object pronouns with infinitives"
J'écoute le prof. -- I listen to the teacher.J'écoute de la musique. -- I listen to music.
But never: j'écoute à....Consequently no lui/leur.
