In the lesson, we read that
3. Direct object pronouns le/la/les are placed before indirect object pronouns moi/toi/lui/nous/vous/leur
Aren't there other DOPs such as nous/vous/me/te? And do those qualify as preceding IOPs?
You might find my discussion with another student, Shrey featuring what is commonly called 'the football team' relevant to your query -
Hope this helps!
Order of pronouns:-
Direct / Indirect Object -- me, te, nous, vous
Direct Object -- le, la, les
Indirect Object -- lui, leur
Ideally, you would see the order more clearly if you were to create a table based on the above.
Hope this helps.
Careful: you are confusing stress pronouns (moi, toi) with object pronouns.
IOP: me, te, lui, nous, vous, leurDOP: me, te, le/la, nous, vous, les
Je le lui donne. -- I'm giving it to him.Je nous le donne. -- I'm giving it to us.
Notice that the order of pronouns doesn't follow grammatical function, as in the first sentence DOP precedes IOP, whereas in the second one it is the other way around. But if you remember the order Jim mentioned, you'll be fine (le before lui, and nous before le).
