I am studying Spanish with the Michel Thomas Method. It says that in Spanish, the gender is often not specified.
no lo compra - he/she is not buying
puede mandárselo - can you send it to him
It then says you can specify gender and gives the following example:
él no lo compra - He is not buying it
puede mandárselo a él? - can you send it to him?
¿Por qué no se lo dijo a él? - Why didn’t you tell it to him?
Él quiere que se lo mande. - He wants me to send it to him.
I am bit confused? Sometimes the gender is specified at the start, other times at the end.
How do you know where to position it?
