Tu versus Ti

WilliamR18

I'm confused as to when to use "tu" versus "ti". Would you help me with this? An example would be helpful.

Thanks

Hi William,

Tu is used as a subject, as in:
Tu sei alto. You are tall.
Tu hai tre libri. You have three books.

Ti is used as an object, as in:
Io ti vedo. I see you.
Ti manco una lettera. I send you a letter.
In this case, io is the subject of the sentence.

Hope this helps!

Lucia
