Direct pronouns are like say it in english

eg. Je regarde le tele ---> Je le regarde
I watch tv Je watch it

Where do u place the "le" if the pharse was negative with passe compose?

Also how do u know when to use une or la ?

Finally, reguallary when u are using a word such as la animal (as an example, not real) , would u place it as l'animal?

Thanks Very Happy

First thing, it's la télé.
Je ne regarde pas la télé
Je ne la regarde pas
Je ne l'ai pas regardée

I am bad with general rules

Le/la are "articles définis"

Un/une are "articles indéfinis"

mais vous pouvez utiliser "les" pour "them"....

- Aimez-vous ces rideaux?
- Oui, je les aime beaucoup.

You can also use it for people, too.

- J'attends mes parents. Ah, les voila!
(I know there's an accent on 'voila', but my pc is messed up right now so I can't switch to 'French' for the accents.)

With 'Leur', it can be used with possession.

Leur voiture.

But, you can also use 'leur', for example, if you're talking to someone.

Je leur parle.
