lui, le, la, leur - reflexive pronouns?

lui, le, la, leur - reflexive pronouns?

In this lesson you say "Use qui when the following word is a verb or reflexive pronoun (e.g. me, te, se, lui, le, la, nous, vous, leur, les, etc)", but isn't there a mistake here? Can lui, le, la, leur be reflexive pronouns?

Hi Guilherme, 

Thank you for pointing this out and for your suggestion which is now added to the lesson paragraph.

Bonne Continuation!

Hi Guilherme,

Pronouns:-

lui / leur - indirect      le / la / les - direct   

me / te / se / nous / vous - reflexive     and also (except se)  direct or indirect as appropriate.

Hope this helps

Jim

Thanks. In that case, I suggest adding the word "objects" to the following line: "Use qui when the following word is a verb or reflexive/object pronoun (e.g. me, te, se, lui, le, la, nous, vous, leur, les, etc)."

Second paragraph of the section "How to know when to use qui (instead of que) in French"

lui, le, la, leur - reflexive pronouns?
