In French, as in English, there are direct and indirect object pronouns.
Object pronouns – direct and indirect object pronouns
In English, a direct object pronoun receives the action in a sentence.
She hit the ball. “ball” would be the direct object
You can replace these direct objects with direct object pronouns (to avoid repetition).
She hit it. “it” is the direct object pronoun- substituted for the ball
Object Pronouns- me, te, nous, and vous can be either direct or indirect depending on context
