What is a subject pronoun?

Pronouns are words that take the place of nouns. Every sentence has a subject. The subject of the sentence is who or what is doing the action in the sentence or is being described.

In English, the subject pronouns are I, you, he/she/it, we, they.

In Spanish, as with many other grammatical forms, there are different gender forms of pronouns.
Be careful! Notice that él is spelled exactly the same as el … except for the accent mark over the e. Make sure that whenever you write ‘he‘ you don’t end up inadvertenly writing ‘the.’

tú or usted?

Like many languages, Spanish makes a distinction between familiar and formal forms of address.
Tú is the familiar or informal you and it is used:
•When speaking with family members or good friends.
•When speaking to children.
•When talking to your pets.
•Usually, when someone starts addressing you as tú. Generally, however, you should not respond in the familiar form if the person who addresses you as tú is someone in a position of authority over you (such as a police officer).
•When someone lets you know it's OK to address him or her in familiar terms. (The verb for "to speak to someone in familiar terms" is tutear.)
•When meeting peers, if such is the custom in the region for your age group and social status. Again, you can take your cues from those around you and the person you're speaking with.
