A1 - Say things about someone else in Spanish?

Speaking  about somebody else in Spanish.

The first thing you might notice is that is in English we always explicitly say who we are refering to with he she or it in Spanish it is  not necesarilly so. 

 vive Could mean  he she or it lives.  

It is not normally a problem because it is obvious from the context. 

If you really want you can include a subject pronoun. eg Él vive  He lives

We have included the subject pronoun in some of the examples but they are optional.

Another thing you might notice is that speaking about the 3rd person in Spanish is very much like using "usted" or the formal style. 
Usted vive   You live? (formal style) 

Note also that "su" could be either his or her.
su deportista favorito   his or her favourite sports person
