  • Hi everybody and welcome to this video.

  • In this video, we're going to talk about subjective pronouns.

  • So, let's take a look at the board.

  • Here they are. The subjective pronouns.

  • Please take a careful look. They're very important in English.

  • Okay. So, the first subjective pronoun is 'I'.

  • “I” means me. “I'm Esther”.

  • I

  • He Now, “heis only used for boys or men.

  • Okay. He

  • So another boy or man ishe”.

  • Sheis used for girls or women.

  • Okay. She

  • ItItis used for a place like a school, an animal like a dog, or a thing like a chair.

  • Okay. It

  • The next one isyou”. “Youmeans you.

  • Okay. “you”.

  • WeWemeans other people and me.

  • For example, “I sing”, “you sing”, thenwe sing”.

  • Okay. “we”.

  • And the last one isthey”.

  • Theymeans many people, places, animals or things.

  • Okay. So, more than one.

  • If there's more than one, we use the subjective pronoun 'they'.

  • Okay, let's move on to the next part.

  • Okay, so let's practice together with subjective pronouns.

  • The first sentence on the board says, “Jenny sings”.

  • Now Jenny is one girl.

  • So we can say, “She sings”.

  • Jack sings”. Jack is one boy.

  • So we have to say, “he sings”.

  • The last sentence says, “Jenny and Jack sing”.

  • Now Jenny and Jack are two people.

  • So we have to say, “they sing”.

  • Okay, let's move on to the next part.

  • Okay, let's do some more practice.

  • The first sentence on the board says,

  • The cat runs”.

  • 'The cat' is an animal, so we have to say, “It runs”.

  • The next sentence says, “The dog and cat run”.

  • Now, 'the dog and cat', they are two animals.

  • So anytime you have two or more things, we say, “They run”.

  • 'They'.

  • Okay, now, for the last sentence, I'm going to talk about my cat, Ongee.

  • Ongee is a cat. He's an animal.

  • But he has a name. He's a boy cat.

  • Okay and I love him. And he's like family.

  • So, “Ongee runs”. I can sayHe runs”.

  • Okay. Let's move on to the next part.

  • Okay, here are some more examples.

  • But, this time, you have to figure out the subjective pronoun together with me.

  • Okay. So, “My students study”.

  • What should we use?

  • Well, 'My students', there's an 's'. Right.

  • They're people and there's more than one.

  • Many people.

  • So we have to use the subjective pronoun, 'they'.

  • They study”.

  • The next example.

  • John is handsome”.

  • Okay, 'John', that's a person.

  • There's only one. Right

  • And it's a boy, 'John'.

  • So what should we use?

  • We have to use the subjective pronoun, 'he'.

  • One boy. We say, “he”.

  • He is handsome”.

  • Okay, the last one. “Pizza is delicious”.

  • 'Pizza' is a thing.

  • And there's only one. Right.

  • There's no 's'. One pizza.

  • We say, “it”.

  • It is delicious”. Okay.

  • Let's move on to some more examples.

  • Okay, the first example says,

  • Seoul is a city”.

  • Now, 'Seoul' is a place. Okay.

  • So we have to use the subjective pronoun, 'it'.

  • It is a city”.

  • The next example says,

  • My parents love Ongee”.

  • Now, 'Ongee' is my cat. “My parents love Ongee”.

  • Well, 'my parents', they are two people. My mom and my dad.

  • So, what do I use?

  • I have to say, “they”. “They love Ongee”.

  • The last example is very similar to the second one.

  • My parents and I love Ongee”. Okay.

  • The difference isit says, “and I”.

  • So this is 'my parents' with 'me'.

  • So I have to say, “we”. “We love Ongee”.

  • Okay. All of us.

  • Okay, so, in this video we learned about subjective pronouns.

  • I hope you guys have a good understanding of 'when' and 'how' to use them.

  • Thank you for watching and I'll see you guys next time.
