Objective: Learn to read and write a few more Japanese pronouns.
Japanese pronouns are not used nearly as frequently as they are in English. In spoken Japanese, pronouns like "I", "you", "he", and "she" are seldom used in speech. More commonly, personal pronouns are omitted and other people are referred to by their names or titles. For a deeper understanding of Japanese pronouns, we recommend reading Wikipedia's Japanese pronouns page.
When used as the topic of the sentence, Japanese pronouns are followed by the subject marker, は.
かれ = he
かのじょ = she
わたしたち = we
あなたたち = you (plural)
かれら = they
がくせい = student
きょうし = teacher
いし = doctor (medical)
アーティスト = artist
シェフ = chef
はいゆう = actor; actress
ミュージシャン = musician
かれはシェフです。 = He is a chef.
[kare wa shefu desu]
あなたたちはがくせいですか？ = Are you students?
[anatatachi wa gakusei desuka?]
