Inanimate Objects#

Why does it say "You never use le and les to replace inanimate objects." When other sources say that spanish does not distinguish between inanimacy.

This question relates to:
Spanish lesson "Using le and les = [to] it,him, her, them (indirect object pronouns) "

Hello Daniel

We will remove this bit of information from the lesson because, although, more commonly used to refer to people or animals, "le/les" can also refer to inanimate objects, for example "Le añadí sal a la comida" (I added salt to the food), acting also as an indirect object. 

Thanks for reporting this and sorry about the confussion.
