Nice question but very much important.


Without knowing this answer many students just go to and fro that I see everyday in my Facebook groups English program.


I teach them perfect English everyday, at least I try.

look at the first part

I (sub)+ teach (verb) + them ( indirect object) + perfect English( direct object)

I.O is always animated but direct object is both animated and anythings, clear?

I saw you a structure here, it could be written another way too, like

I teach perfect English to them, at least I try.

Sub+Verb+direct Object + preposition + indirect object,

Hope it works.
