Lesson 9: Personal subject pronouns 2

You've already learned the subject pronouns for singular persons, now we will also learn the subject pronouns for plural persons.

Personal subject pronouns Singular Plural
First person yo
I
nosotros, nosotras
we
Second person tú, usted
you
vosotros, vosotras, ustedes
you
Third person él, ella
he, she
ellos, ellas
they

Nosotras, vosotras and ellas refer to groups of only females and nosotros, vosotros and ellos refer to groups of only males or to groups with both males and females.

Tú, vosotros and vosotras are informal forms, used for addressing friends and family. Usted and ustedes are more formal, used for addressing strangers and superiors.

In Latin America, ustedes is generally used instead of vosotros and vosotras, whether addressing friends or strangers. You will only need to use vosotros and vosotras when you go to Spain.
