Bonjour Nicholas !

In the case of indirect objects - complements to the verb introduced by a preposition "à" or "de" - following the pattern "à + stress pronoun", in French they need to be replaced altogether by indirect object pronouns: "me, te, lui, nous, vous, leur".

Here are links to our related lessons:

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
