I’ve been going through the SSI in Spanish challenges, and it’s an excellent course and everything, however I was wondering why the lessons use personal pronouns with verbs? I thought in Spanish that personal pronouns are not used in everyday speech, except for extra clarity or emphasis. They’re usually excluded by Spanish natives because you can tell by the ending of the verb which person the verb is referring to, for example ‘usted habla’ in everyday speech is just ‘habla’, ‘usted necesita’ is usually just ‘necesita’, etc.
I’m not knocking the course at all, I just think it’d sound more natural to not use the personal pronouns as they’re not really used in natural Spanish conversation much, so if people get into the habit of using them all the time it would lead to them sounding a little unnatural perhaps. Was there a reason they were put in?
