- In general, personal pronouns are not used in Spanish because the verb endings usually make it clear who the subject is:
(Yo) Soy Magda, (Nosotros) Somos amigos.
I'm Magda; we’re friends.
- Vosotros/as is only used in Spain. In Latin America, the ustedes personal pronoun is used in every informal and formal context:
Ustedes son mis mejores amigos.
You are my best friends.
- Vos replaces tú in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and in other parts of Latin America:
Vos sos argentino.
You are Argentinian.
