French Subject Pronouns
In English Subject pronouns refer to a specific person or people and act as subjects of a sentence or clause. In English subject pronouns are I, you, he, she, it, we, they. Pronouns can be used to avoid repeating the subject once it has been made clear.

The beauty of learning a foreign language it helps you understand your own language better. It is impossible to learn subject pronouns in French if you do not know what they are in your own language.
In French The subject pronouns are je or j’(I), tu (you), il (he), elle (she), on (one), nous (we), vous (you), ils (they), elles (they).
T o say you, use tu to talk to a friend, a family member, or someone your age. Use vous to talk to more than one person or to an adult who is not a family member.
To say they, use elles when you are talking about two or more females. Use ils when talking about a group of males or a mixed group of males and females.
The pronoun on has no direct equivalent in English. It can mean one, we, or people in general.
