Direct object pronouns

Direct object pronouns are used to avoid repetition of a person or object previously mentioned. 

Ana llama a Teo → Ana lo llama.

Ana calls Teo → Ana calls him.

¿Conoces a mi prima? Sí, claro que la conozco.

Do you know my cousin? Yes, of course I know her.

Singular Plural
1ª persona Ustedes me conocen Nosotros nos conocemos
2ª persona Ella te conoce Él os conoce
3ª persona lo conoces (♂)

la conoces (♀)

Yo los conozco (♂)

Yo las conozco (♀)
