je lui presenterai Amelie

The phrase in English was "I will introduce her to Amelie" (sorry I don't have accents).  The translation given is je lui presenterai Amelie which I take to mean "I will introduce Amelie to her".  Should it not be "je la presenterai a Amelie"?

Bonjour John,

In French, you will use "lui" when using the verb "présenter à [quelqu'un]":

Je présenterai (le film) Amélie à ma fille -> Je lui présenterai (le film) Amélie

I will introduce (the film) Amélie to my daughter -> I will introduce her to (the film) Amélie

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
