Bonjour Amanda Afia,

direct object: ask the question ‘qui, quoi’ (who, what)

J’aime Marie I love Marie

J’aime qui I love who → Marie

 

Je mange une pomme = I eat an apple

Je mange quoi I eat what → une pomme

 

Je t’aime I love you

J’aime qui = I love who → t’

 

Je donne mes clés = I give my keys

Je donne quoi = I give what → my keys

 

Indirect Object: ask the question ‘à qui/quoi – de qui/quoi’ (to whom/what – of whom/what)

Je donne mes clés à ma soeur = I give my keys to my sister

Je donne mes clés à qui I give my keys to whom → ma soeur

 

Je lui donne mes clés = I give my keys to her

Je donne mes clés à qui = I give my keys to whom →lui

 

Je t’en offre I offer some to you

J’en offre à qui I offer some to whom → t’ / you

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
