French and Spanish are both romance languages, but Spanish is a little different. Just like in French the first person singular form of the pronoun is used to speak about yourself.
EXAMPLES: Yo hablo- I am speaking, Yo como la tortilla- I am eating the tortilla, Yo camino-I am walking, Yo bailo-I am dancing, Yo canto-I am singing. Once you learn the pronouns you can omit using the YO when speaking.
In French there is one form for 1st person plural- NOUS, but Spanish has two forms NOSOTROS- masculine and feminine which is used when the speaker includes both male and female. EXAMPLES: Nosotros hablamos con la chica- We(boys and girls) are speaking to the girl. Nosotros comemos una manzana roja- We are eating a red apple.
Nosotras hablamos con la chica- We( girls only) are speaking to the girl, Nosotras comemos la manzana roja- We are eating the red apple.
The yo , nosotros, nosotras pronouns are important to know because just like in French they are used in daily conversations.
