I am going to start the lessons with to be:
In English you conjugate the person as 1st person singular etc, in the way you see below. On the right you see the translation of it.
You Vosotros Here we are talking about you in the plural form.
They Ellos/Ellas Ellos is used when refering to a group of males or a mixed group.
Ellas is used when reffering to a group of females.
You have to know this when you are learning how to conjugate the verb "TO BE"
I am going to write down how you conjugate it in English at the left, and then Spanish under.
[ I AM ] I am Paola
[ YOU ARE ] You are Paola
[ HE IS] He is Pablo
[ SHE IS] She is Paola
[ IT IS] It is Paola
[ WE ARE] We are Paola and Pablo
[ YOU ARE] You are Paola and Pablo
[ THEY ARE] They are Paola and Pablo
In spanish you don't have to write yo, tu, ++ in front of your sentence like you have to in English. So if you want to say "I am Paola", you just say " soy Paola. Because you know that is just (yo) that's using "soy". But if you really want to, or think it's easier you can have the person in front. " Yo soy Paola".
You don't have to have Yo, tu etc, in front of your sentences. It's enough to write for example : " soy Paola" Since it's SOY, you know that it's I AM.
At the last sentence " Ellos son Paola y Pablo" You have to use ELLOS instead of ELLAS because it's a group of mixed genders. If you want to say " They are Lisa and Paola", you are using "Ellas" because it's a group of females. When you are talking about a group of men you are using "Ellos".
"Y" Is the same as "AND" in English. " Paola and Pablo", Paola y Pablo"
If you did'nt understand send me a letter, and I will try to explain to you
spanish has too many laws of grammars, sometimes this beats me,keep on ......
