Subject Pronouns and -ar, -er, -ir conjugations

Author: Aaron Marvel
Description:

By the end of this lesson the student will be able to recognize subject pronouns in Spanish and use them correctly while conjugating sentences.

The most important skill any Spanish language learner can master is conjugating verbs.  Without verbs our sentences have know point.  Just think.  What would I be saying if I removed the verb from "I eat hotdogs."  That would be "I hotdog".  That's not what I was trying to say at all.  So obviously verbs are important.  Lets learn out to use them in Spanish.

Tutorial

Senor Jordan and Subject Pronouns

You are about to watch a video that explains the use of subject pronouns. For example, in English I say the word "I" when I want to refer to myself, but in Spanish we use the word "yo". The video will now introduce the words for "you, he, she, we, and they".

Note: pay attention to the formal and informal ways to say "you". We do not have anything like this in English.
