    Dear all,

    I´ve seen this sentence from this website, and wonderimg if I can say this way also:
    Me dio mucho gusto volverlo a ver = Me dio mucho gusto volver a verlo?

    The meaning is the same? or which one is more correct?

    Thank you very much.

    Las dos posiciones del pronombre son correctas: volverlo a ver = volver a verlo. Ambas me suenan igual de naturales.

    Lo que me suena un poco más extraño (en España) es lo de "me dio mucho gusto", pero ese es otro tema.

    "Volver a verlo" is definitely correct, and I am not entirely sure about the other one, but I´d say it´s not right, as "ver" -and not "volver"- is the action that applies to "him/lo". But as I said, not "officially" sure!

    These are probables.

    Me dio mucho gusto volver a verlo.

    España
    Me ha dado mucho gusto volver a verle.

    I like volver a verlo more than volverlo a ver.

    Not that simple. Even "volver a verle" is not incorrect, you'd better not use it if you are not sure to be taliking to someone who would use it to (like me ;) ).
    In Spain: "Me gustó/alegró mucho volver a verlo/volverlo a ver".
