Personal pronouns

Singular Plural
1ª persona Yo soy Nosotras / ♂ Nosotros somos
2ª persona eres Vosotras / ♂Vosotros sois
3ª persona Ella / ♂Él / ♀♂ Usted es Ellas / ♂Ellos / ♀♂ Ustedes son


  • 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 in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and in other parts of Latin America:

Vos sos argentino.

You are Argentinian.
