Lesson number 1 – Personal pronouns Subject
We’re going to learn in this Spanish lesson online the personal pronouns subject, these ones are the most important pronouns, and the «basics» of the Spanish language. They are used in place of a noun, which describes who we are talking about or who talks about what.

Note: in Spanish, the subject personal pronoun is omitted when the answer is fairly obvious
For example, will not say «yo voy a la tienda» but «voy a la tienda» (I’m going to the shop). If the person uses the «yo», it will mark an insistence, generally, to make a comparison or a reproach, in the sense of «me, I go to the store (unlike you)».
We will use little «usted» in Spanish as a pronoun
Here are some examples of use of personal pronouns subject in Spanish:
My name is Carlos => (yo) me llamo Carlos
You know the problem well => Usted conoce bien el problema
They don’t understand => ellos no entienden
