This short lesson will explain how to use the Direct Object Pronoun with an ER infinitive.

1. First replace the er by ê
2. Then add a hyphen
3. And then add either lo/ la/ los / las. The gender and the number of the pronoun must agree with the noun replaced.
Study the following examples:
Eu quero escrever uma carta. Eu quero escrevê-la
Eu quero beber um copo de vinho. Eu quero bebê-lo
Ela quer escolher as bolsas. Ela quer escolhê-las
Tu queres ler os livros. Tu queres lê-los.
