[Part 1]

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.

Ok…

So, the first subjective pronoun is ‘I’.

“I” means me.

“I’m Esther”.

“I”.

“He”.

Now, “he” is only used for boys or men.

Ok…

“He”.

So another boy or man is “he”.

“She” is used for girls or women.

Ok…

“She”.

“It”.

“It” is used for a place like a school, an animal like a dog, or a thing like a chair.

Ok…

“It”.

The next one is “you”.

“You” means you.

Ok…”you”.

“We”.

“We” means other people and me.

For example, “I sing”, “you sing”, then “we sing”.

Ok…”we”.

And the last one is “they”.

“They” means many people, places, animals or things.

Ok…

So, more than one.

If there’s more than one, we use the subjective pronoun ‘they’.

Ok, let’s move on to the next part.

1:43 [Part 2]

Ok, 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”.

Ok, let’s move on to the next part.

2:24 [Part 3]

Ok, let’s do some moe 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’.

Ok, 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.

Ok and I love him.

And he’s like family

So, “Ongee runs”.

I can say “He runs”.

Ok…

Let’s move on to the next part.

3:19 [Part 4]

Ok, here are some more examples.

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

Ok…

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”.

Ok, ‘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”.

Ok, 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”.

Ok…

Let’s move on to some more examples.

4:48 [Part 5]

Ok, the first example says, “Seoul is a city”.

Now, ‘Seoul’ is a place.

Ok…

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”.

Ok…

The difference is… it says, “and I”.

So this is ‘my parents’ with ‘me’.

So I have to say, “we”.

“We love Ongee”.

Ok…

All of us.

Ok, 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.

Bye.
