  • I (1st person singular) is always spelled with a capital letter.

I am an engineer.

What can I do for you?

 

  • You, (2nd person singular and plural) can be used for both singular and plural beings.

Welcome, John. You are late.

Welcome, John and Jill. You are late.

 

  • “He” (3rd person singular) is used for a boy/man, “she” is used for a girl/woman, and “it” is used for either a non-living being or an animal. For pets whose sex we know, we can use he or she.

 

  • “It” can be used for expressing time, weather or temperature.

It is rainy. (weather)

It’s cold. (weather)

It is late. (time)

It’s 3 o’clock. (time)

It’s Sunday. (day)

 

  • Please review the subject pronouns in the examples below:

John is a good student. He is my school friend. (John = He)

My sister likes milk a lot. She is just 5 years old. (My sister = She)

John and my sister are students. They are good friends. (John and my sister= they)

An elephant is a heavy animal. It lives in Africa. (An elephant = it)

Penguins live in Antarctica. They are funny animals. (Penguins = they)

You and Jill are a good couple. You like each other a lot. (You and Jane= You)

My friends and I study hard. We are hardworking. (My friends and I = we)

 

  • While the subject pronoun “I” is being used with other nouns, usually, the pronoun is pronounced first, followed by “I”.

My friends and I study hard. (Not “I and my friends study hard.”)
