Spanish Prepositional Pronouns

Pronouns as objects of prepositions in spanish

What are Spanish prepositional pronouns?

Learn how to use Spanish Prepositional Pronouns. A pronoun is a word that is used instead of the name of a person or thing.

When the pronoun acts as the object of a preposition, a different set of pronouns is used.

Subject – Obj. Prep. Pronouns

Yo (I) – mí

Tú (You)(Informal) – ti

Él/Ella(He/She) – él ,ella

Usted (You)(Formal) – usted

Nosotros(as)(We) – nosotros/as

Vosotros(as)(You)(Informal) – vosotros/as

Ustedes(You)(Formal) – ustedes

Ellos(as)(They) – ellos/as

Note: Only “mí” and “ti” are different from the subject pronouns. Use this second set of pronouns to replace the noun that comes immediately after a preposition.


La profesora habla de mí. – My teacher talks about me.
