¿Yo or ? ¿ or ti?

Reminder: personal pronouns generally go before the verb.

Yo tengo 100 años.

I am 100 years old.

Nosotros estamos en la piscina.

We are in the swimming pool.

When it comes after a preposition, yo changes to , and to ti.

No puedo vivir sin ti.

I can't live without you.

Hazlo por yo .

Do it for me.

The only exception is the prepositions hasta (until, even), entre (between, among) and según (according to). After them, we use yo and tú.

Hasta yo sé hacerlo.

Even I know how to do it.

Entre tú y Magda hay algo.

There is something between you and Magda.

Note: most of the time, personal pronouns are used only for emphasis or when there is a risk of ambiguity. The rest of the time they are implicit and are inferred from the conjugation of the verb.

(Yo) Soy de Bolivia.

I am from Bolivia.

(Ellos) Van al supermercado.

They go to the supermarket.
