In this video, we talk about the personal pronouns in Spanish. If you’re not sure, personal pronouns are nouns that take the place of people I, you, he, she, we, they. In Spanish they are yo, tú, él, ella, usted, nosotros, nosotras, *vosotros, *vosotras, ellos, ellas, ustedes.
This lesson is an important building block on Spanish grammar so you might want to watch it more than once.

I focus more on Latin American Spanish and in these videos. Therefore, I will not be covering the vosotros form. If there is a lot of demand for it, I might reconsider. Basically, in Spain, people use the vosotros form, which means “You all” (when talking to a group of people you know). Ustedes is used for a group of people you don’t necessarily know. In Latin America, any time you want to say “You all”, Ustedes is used.
