English [Auto] All right. In this lesson we're going to be covering the personal pronouns and these are vital for you. And you're going to help you understand the next lessons on the verbs and how they all work. So let's get started here. Now I'm going to call these pronoun trees for this course on the left. We have English. And on the right you have the Spanish equivalent. So in English it is I. Spanish is your English is you. In Spanish is true. Now there's two ways to say you in Spanish. This is the informal way of saying it. Okay too informal is we use that when we speak with people that we know friends family etc.. Right. They also call this to data. So if you want a to dyad with somebody that means speak in two. That's what you're doing your duty handle. All right. And then the other way to say you is who's dead and whose death is the formal you OK. It's like us saying sir and ma'am. Hi sir how you doing ma'am. Etc.. Ok so you dead and then he is Ed and she is a and then we move on to we or us. And that is no salt Rose. OK. No salt Rose. And then there's two ways of saying the plural you. OK. You all are you guys would be both sulphurous OK. And then there's also you all you guys that is who said this. Now the difference between the two both salt Rose is actually used in Spain. You don't see it in South America or in Latin America. And both ultras we won't be using a whole lot in this course you won't see it in the examples but they will be in the conjugations of the verbs that you do see. OK so we're going to be focusing on status and again that's the plural so you guys you all you just when we're speaking about plural you. OK. And then lastly is they. And they is a yes or a yes depending on if you are referring to males or females. OK. If you're referring to males it's a use if referring to females. It's a yes. OK. So what do you use if it's a mix if it's a group of both male and female right then you would say a use it defaults to the Basque island. All right. So you would use a use if it's a mixture of males and females. OK Moy Bienne get used to seeing these trees and visualizing them as they will help you a ton with the next lesson. As we begin the verbs OK so see in the next lesson.
