Subject and Object Pronouns

Pronouns are used in the place of nouns to make communication easier and also to avoid repetition.
  • Sergio Agüero is a great goalscorer. He is Manchester City’s all-time leading goalscorer.
‘He’ is a (subject) pronoun. Without the pronoun ‘He’, we would need to constantly repeat the name.
  • Sergio Agüero is a great goalscorer. Sergio Agüero is Manchester City’s all-time leading goalscorer.
Subject Pronouns
Subject pronouns are the subject of the sentence.
  • I am a goalkeeper.
  • You are an important player for this team.
  • He is a brilliant defender.
  • She is a great coach.
  • We don’t have a game this weekend.
  • They don’t score many goals.
Subject pronouns go before the verb.
  • I play, we go, they live.
Object Pronouns

Object pronouns are the object of the sentence.

  • I am going to see her later.
  • Don’t forget me.
  • Can you speak to him?
  • What did he say to you?
Object pronouns go after the verb.
  • Pass to him, I don’t know her, John is with them.
