Hi Lenni,

Il raconte l'histoire à mon ami ------> Il la lui raconte

Il raconte une histoire à mon ami ------> Il lui en raconte une 

 

 

Bonne continuation !

Salut Lenni,

May I ask you to include the kwiziq lesson or question that you are querying?

It is easier to explain from knowledge of which lesson or question and then your query can be answered in the correct context.

Bonne journée

Jim

Hi Lenni,

In this case, une histoire is the direct object (COD) with the corresponding pronoun la (female singular). If you had an indirect object (COI) introduced by de, you would use en as the pronoun.

 Il la lui raconte. .. He tells it to him.
