In Spanish the preposition con is followed by a pronoun in order to express with me, with you, with him, with her, with us, with you and with them.
Have a look and listen to the following examples:
Important note: The first two examples have irregular forms "conmigo" and "contigo". They form a single word and cannot be separated from the preposition con. The rest of the forms are the subject pronouns (él, ella, usted, nosotros, nosotras, vosotros, vosotras, ellos, ellas, ustedes). It is important to remember not to use other pronoun forms, e.g. direct object pronouns or indirect object pronouns.
These would be incorrect:
- Ven con me. (Come with me.)
- María bailó con le. (Maria danced with him.)
These are correct:
- ¡Ven conmigo! (Come with me!)
- María bailó con él. (Maria danced with him.)
