The verb “to be” (positive form / affirmative form) and subject personal pronouns
Notice that in English a subject is always used before a conjugated verb form, either as a subject personal pronoun (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they), a common noun (a teacher, a classroom, teachers…), or a proper noun (William, Harry, the Simpsons….).
In modern English, the contraction of the subject personal pronoun and verb is very common (I am > I’m, you are > you’re…).
Also, the second person singular is the same as the second person plural (you): you are a student (singular), you are students (plural)…
Note that “he” and “she” are used for males and females but objects for instance, “a school” which is a neuter, singular, uses the third person singular (it),” it is a school“. The third person plural does not vary, “they” is used for people or objects: they are students, they are classrooms…
Please repeat and memorise the following list. It contains subject personal pronouns and the verb “to be” in the present simple / simple present, in both the complete and contracted forms (positive form / affirmative form).
I am I’m

He is He’s

It is It’s
