Los pronombressujetos (the subject pronouns)

…making sense of the subject

los sujetos the subjects
Los sujetos (The subjects):
  • Singular (singular)
  • Plural (plural)
  • First, second or third person (la primera, segunda o tercera persona)
going from english to spanish
Going from English to Spanish:
  • In English we have first, second and third person in our reading and writing.
  • First person is basically “I” and “We.” This is simple. If the subject of a sentence is me then the subject is “I.” It is first person singular because it is just me.

If the subject of a sentence is me and at least one other person, then the subject is the plural of “I.” That means I have added one other person to myself and it is now a plural subject…(more than one) and…it is the first person plural.


In the third person (we will get to the second person in a minute) you are talking about someone and it will be “he,” “she” or “they.” In the third person singularit can only be HE or SHE. It can NEVER BE you.

third person plural
Third person plural
  • When you are talking aboutmore than one other person, you will need different words.
  • To talk about more than one boy or man, you use ellos.
sujetos subjects
Sujetos (subjects):
  • First person singular and plural
  • Third person singular and plural

  • ______________somos altos (as).

Third person singular:

  • He is tall.
  • ______ es alto.
  • She is tall.
  • _____ esalta.
  • Third person plural:
  • They are tall. (boys)
  • _____ son alt__.
  • They are tall. (girls)
  • _____ son alt__.
you you you
  • In English “you is you.” We say you directly to one friend or more than one friend…a couple or a group. We say you to someone older, younger, a friend, or authority figure…it doesn’t matter.
  • In Spanish this is not the case. There are more ways to say you in Spanish.
t usted vosotros y ustedes
Tú, usted, vosotros y ustedes…

What? What are tú, usted, vosotros y ustedes?

The four ways to say you in Spanish. Keep these four words as a group and remember that they mean you.

you in spanish
You in Spanish…
  • Tú, Usted and ustedes are used all over the world to say you either singular or plural.
vosotros y all only in spain
Vosotros… “y’all” (only in Spain)
  • The word vosotros is mostly used in Spain and it means “y’all” or “you guys.” Just as in the United States of America we say “y’all” and “you guys” a lot, so do the Spaniards. So, since we use it a lot here, it should be easy to understand another country that does the same thing instead of saying “you”all the time. We do not like to be formal and neither does Spain.

But most of the other Spanish-speaking people around the world prefer to use usted or ustedesfor you, “y’all” and “you guys.” Don’t worry you guys will get it (No tepreocupesvosotrosvaisa comprenderlo).
