PRACTICE - PERSONAL-SUBJECT PRONOUNS
SEE IT - YOU + I = WE (REVIEW VERSION)
REMINDER · For verbs that follow the green spelling pattern, always notice which use the primary "will" and "would" endings "-irá" and "-iría", because they always use the "-imos" ending in the present. And those that use the secondary variation "-erá" and "-ería" always use "-emos" in the present.

MINI-LESSON - DIRECT OBJECTS OF THE VERB
Direct Objects of the Verb - Part 1 of 2
The subject of the verb does the action, and the object of the verb is part of the action:
(The subject) admires the object.
(He) admires him.
(She) admires her.
(I) admire you.
(They) admire me.
(You) admire us.
(We) admire them.
In Spanish these object pronouns come before the verb:
(Él) me admira.
(Ella) nos admira.
(Yo) lo admiro.
(Nosotros) la admiramos.
In Spanish, the object "you" can be "lo", "la", "los", or "las":
(Yo) lo admiro. = (I) admire you. - talking to a male
(Nosotros) la admiramos. = (We) admire you. - talking to a female
(Ella) los/las admira. = (She) admires you. - talking to a group
In Spanish, the object "you" should be "te" if "lo" and "la" are too formal:
(Yo) te admiro. = (I) admire you. - talking to a male or a female
When the subject and the object are the same person (or thing), the object is called "reflexive":
(He) admires himself.
(She) admires herself.
(They) admire themselves.
(You) admire yourself/yourselves.
(I) admire myself.
(We) admire ourselves.
In Spanish, reflexive objects are more simple than English:
(Él) se admira. = (He) admires self.
(Ella) se admira. = (She) admires self.
(Ellos/Ellas) se admiran. = (They) admire self.
(Usted) se admira. = (You) admire self.
(Ustedes) se admiran. = (You) admire self.
(Yo) me admiro. = (I) admire me.
(Nosotros) nos admiramos. = (We) admire us.
(Tú) te admiras. = (You) admire you.
