Hi, can anyone please tell me which of the following sentences is correct?
He recommended me a good restaurant.
He recommnended a good restaurant to me.
I think it's the second because it's the restaurant that's being recommended. Am I correct?
So, in that sentence it is important to put the indirect object after the direct object - why? Because in the next sentence it doesn't matter.
I gave the waiter 50 euros.
I gave 50 euros to the waiter.
I can't find a rule that tells me how to decide where they direct and indirect object go depending on the sentence.
I hope you can help.
