The verb SER means “to be” It is an irregular verb meaning that just like its English equivalent it doesn’t follow pattern.
Subject pronouns First we need to learn the subject pronouns. These are the words that take the place of the subject´s name. Iyo Youtú Heél Sheella Wenosotros (as) Theyellos, ellas You (plural)ustedes
Spanish has four subject pronouns that mean you. Use tú when talking to a friend, a family member, or a child. Use usted when talking to someone with whom you have a more formal relationship, such as an employer or a professor, or to someone who is older than you. In Latin America, ustedes is used as the plural of both tú and usted.
To be I am You are He/she/it is We are They are As you see the verb does not resemble its parent verb “to be”.
SER Yo soy Tú eres Él/ella/usted es Nosotros somos Ellos/ellas/ustedes son
Examples Yo soy doctor. Tú eres dentista. Carlos es estudiante Nosotros somos profesores. Ellos son artistas. Él es estudiante.
Nosotros refers to “we” in either a group of all males or a mixed group. Nosotras refers to a group of all females. Remember that is you use “nosotros”, it means that YOU are in the group. For example: Tú y yo somos amigos.
There is no Spanish equivalent of the English subject pronoun it. You will use the third person singular or plural to talk about objects. ¿Qué es? Es un coche.
