Pronouns are words that are used as substitutes for noun or noun phrases to avoid repetition and refer to an already known subject.
Personal pronouns replace the nouns that function as the subject in a sentence hence why they could also be referred to as subject pronouns.
Impersonal pronouns are used as the subject of the sentence to talk about people in a general manner and allow for generic interpretation. There are four types of impersonal pronouns: it, there, one, they.
Object pronouns are used to substitute an object or to indicate towards whom the action is directed. They can be direct and indirect.
Possessive pronouns indicate a possession of the noun that is discussed in the sentence. As they fully replace the noun it is vital that the reader or listener is aware of the context.
Reflexive pronouns are used to refer back to the subject and put an emphasis on what or who is performing the action.
Reciprocal pronouns are used to explain a reciprocated action between two or more people at the same time. The two pronouns are each other and one another.
Demonstrative pronouns are used to point to something and determine their location in time and space (distance). The pronouns are: this, that, these, those.
Relative pronouns are used to join two sentences and provide supplementary information about what one is talking about.
Indefinite pronouns as the name suggest do not refer to a specific place, thing, person nor quantity.
Interrogative pronouns are utilized only in the form of a question to collect a supplementary or unknown information.

Hi, First of all, I would like to congratulate you on the decision to learn or improve a new language. Whether it is Estonian, English or... Russian, beginner, advanced or Business language - you are in the right place. My name is Martin and I am coming from a tiny country in the Northern Europe called Estonia. One of my biggest hobbies is teaching and educating others, that is why for the past 3 years I have been living and working in Istanbul while teaching English to different age groups: kindergarten, school, university as well as adults. I have had students from Beginners to Advanced as well as several businessmen and CEOs of international companies located in Istanbul. What is more, for the last 2 years I have been teaching Estonian, English and Russian online through Skype that gave me chance to meet people from all over the world and help them on their journey of learning foreign languages in a comfortable and enjoyable environment. We are going to have a 20-30-minute trial lesson during which we can get to know each other, set expectations towards the lessons and schedule the timetable. The next step is simple - we start learning the language of your choice! As simple as it is :) During the lessons we will focus on making you speak even with the limited vocabulary because speaking is the key to learning a new language quickly and in a fun way! Cannot wait to receive your in-mail and help you on your journey to learn and speak a foreign language. Martin Read more
Hello everyone and a big warm welcome to all the fellow language learners, My name is Katerina, I’m a native Russian speaker and a foreign... language teacher from St Petersburg, Russia. I’ve always been addicted to learning foreign languages, be it English, German, Spanish, Turkish or Arabic, so turning my passion into my job was just a matter of time. I have a Master’s degree in linguistics which taught me to understand the way the mechanism of a language works and thus to help my students see the logics behind the grammar rules. Being a constant language learner enables me to see the process from both sides and to predict the difficulties my students might face. The fact that I’m not a native speaker of English or German means I’ve been through exactly the same language-learning journey you’re about to take, and thanks to my personal experience as a student, I can make this road smooth for you. I've had students of all ages, from pre-school kids to senior generation, and I feel comfortable working with both beginners and those who are eager to take their learning process to a new level. In my classes I encourage you to talk in the language we’re studying as much as possible, putting every single bit of knowledge into practice right away. If you’re a Russian-learner, I’d be glad to prove it to you that you can absolutely nail my mother-tongue - and yes, you’ll be able to make a small talk in Russian by the end of the first class even if you’re an absolute beginner! We’ll be focusing on the topics that are most relevant to your goals, while discovering the language and getting to know more about the culture of people who speak it. I offer a short free trial class, for us to give each other a smile and discuss our teaching pattern, in order to ajust it to your goals and make our lessons the bee's knees :) See you soon! Read more
