A pronoun takes the place of the noun. A subject pronoun takes the place of the subject. We will be learning the subject pronouns in Spanish.
I – YoWe – Nosotros / as You (familiar) – tú You (formal) - Usted You (plural, only used in Spain) – Vosotros / as You (plural used everywhere) – Usted He – él She - ella They (masculine and mixed gender) – Ellos They (feminine only) – Ellas SingularPlural 1 st person 2 nd person 3 rd person
Verbs in English have to agree with the subject of a sentence. The same is true with verbs in Spanish. This is called subject/verb agreement. In order to show what subject pronoun goes with what form of the verb we conjugate the verb.
Yo soy (I am)Nosotros / as somos (we are) Tú eres (you are) Usted es (you are) Vosotros / as sois (you (pl) are) Usted son (you (pl) are) Él es (he is) Ella es (she is) Ellos son (they are) Ellas son (they are) SingularPlural 1 st person 2 nd person 3 rd person Ser – “to be”
Now we are able to use conjugation to talk about anyone on the planet. Remember: The word for from is “de.” On your notes please create five sentences telling me where the following people are from (make up the places). Example: Gerald Gerald es de St. Paul. 1.Dave 2.Esteban and I 3.Jessica, James and you 4.Freddie and Chipper 5.Amber
