We are now reviewing subject pronouns and how they are used with verbs. The subject of the sentence is the ‘doer’ of the action. For example: He eats fast. ‘He’ is the subject, he does the eating (the action). A subject pronoun is a ‘pro’, or word, used and put in place of/or in support of a ‘noun’. Such as ‘He’, instead of using the person’s name, or in place of the dog, or whoever, or whatever the subject is, the subject pronoun ‘he’ is used.
The subject pronouns in Spanish are:
yo = I
tú = you (informal)
él = he
nosotros = we
nosotras = we (if all chicas)
vosotros = y’all (informal Spain)
vosotras = y’all (informal all chicas Spain)
ellos = they
ellas = they (if all chicas)
