Pronouns after prepositions - Easy Learning Grammar Spanish

  • In English, we use me, you, him and so on after a preposition, for example, he came towards me; it’s for you; books by him. In Spanish, there is a special set of pronouns which are used after prepositions.
  • The pronouns used after a preposition in Spanish are the same as the subject pronouns, except for the forms (meaning me) ti (meaning you), and (meaning himself, herself, yourself, themselves, yourselves).
