Je confonds. "She likes this book. HINT: Use ''plaire''

Je confonds. Pourquoi  "Ce livre plait a elle" ne vas pas mais "ce livre lui plait" correct? 


This question relates to:
French lesson "Using "plaire" to express liking something / someone"

Because plaire needs an indirect object and the indirect object of elle is lui.

Hi D,

Ce livre plaît à elle is not correct French it is,

Ce livre lui plaît .

You could say: Ce livre plaît beaucoup à Elsa.

But if you use a pronoun it will need to be before the verb.

Take a look at the examples in the lesson for further explanation.

Hope this helps!
