Personal pronouns

I You He She we You (plural) They (men) They (women)
わたし あなた かれ かのじょ わたしたち あなたたち かれ かのじょたち


Personal pronouns are usually omitted. The Japanese rarely use pronouns such as it, I, you, and he.Instead, you can say the name of the person you are talking to or about. The singular/plural distinction is also not usually clarified.

In Japan かれ and かのじょ are not use much to say “he”and “she”because these means colloquially “boyfriend”and “girlfriend”.
このひと (this person), そのひと (that person) and あのひと (that person) correspond to “he”and “she” in English. These are used to indicate people who we don’t know well and to whom we need to show respect.
あのひとは がくせいですか?
He (She) is a student. (That person).
そのひとは がくせいですか?
Is the person you are talking about a student?
