    Pronouns are words we use in the place of a full noun.

    We have both subject and object pronouns:

    Subject Object
    I me
    you you
    he him
    she her
    it it
    we us
    you you
    they them
    We use he/him to refer to men, and she/her to refer to women. When we are not sure if we are talking about a man or a woman we use they/them.

    This is Jack. He’s my brother. I don’t think you have met him.
    This is Angela. She’s my sister. Have you met her before?
    Talk to a friend. Ask them to help you.
    You could go to a doctor. They might help you.

    Subject pronouns
    We use subject pronouns as subject of the verb:

    I like your dress.
    You are late.
    He is my friend
    It is raining
    She is on holiday
    We live in England.
    They come from London.

    Remember: English clauses always have a subject:

    His father has just retired. Was a teacher. > He was a teacher.
    I’m waiting for my wife. Is late. > She is late.

    If there is no other subject we use it or there. We call this a dummy subject.

    Object pronouns
    We use object pronouns:

    • as the object of the verb:

    Can you help me please?
    I can see you.
    She doesn’t like him.
    I saw her in town today.
    We saw them in town yesterday, but they didn’t see us.

    • after prepositions:

    She is waiting for me.
    I’ll get it for you.
    Give it to him.
    Why are you looking at her?
    Don’t take it from us.
    I’ll speak to them.
