Pronouns after prepositions
él, ella, usted, nombre
ellos/as, ustedes, nombres

*Note that these are almost the same as subject pronouns. The only difference is that yo changes to  and  changes to ti.

Use the preposition a with one of these pronouns and a verb like gustar to add emphasis or to clarify to whom a verb is referring.

Me gusta comer → A mí me gusta comer.
A Juan le gusta comer. → Juan likes to eat.

When you use the preposition con with the pronouns  or ti, they combine to form a new word.

con + mí →  conmigo (with me)
con + ti →  contigo (with you)
