The Subject Pronouns

Here are the subject pronouns in Spanish.  Thanks to Hans for letting me post our lesson will be a great starting point for beginners learning Spanish.

1st Person
nosotros, nosotras
2nd Person
vosotros, vosotras
3rd Person
él, ella, Ud.
ellos, ellas, Uds.

Using each subject pronoun in a sentence:

Yo hablo en una voz alta.  I speak in a loud voice.
platicas tanto.  You chat so much.
Ella anda buscando amor.  She walks around looking for love.
Nosotros podemos jugar.  We can play.
Vosotros veis la verdad.  You see the truth.
¿Encuentran algo Uds.?  Do you find something?

Let me know if you need any help!

Using Hacer to Talk About Time

Use the following formula:

hacer + ______ (unit of time) + que + verb phrase (present tense)

to discuss something that started in the past and is continuing into the present.  For example, if I have been in México for 3 weeks, I can say (using the above formula):

Hace 3 semanas que estoy en México.  I've been in Mexico for 3 weeks.  

You can even leave off que + verb phrase to mean "ago":

Yo fui a México hace 3 semanas.  I went to Mexico 3 weeks ago.  

Confused? Sign up for a lesson!  I'll give you a 1-hour Spanish lesson for only $10 if you mention this blog.  WOW what a deal...
