Ayer & Mañana

The use of yesterday ( AYER ) indicates the past tense.

Put yesterday (AYER) AT THE START OF THE SENTENSE,  and use the present tense of the verb.

For example;

Yesterday I went to the beach.

AYER, voy a la playa.

The use of tomorrow ( MAÑANA ) indicates the future tense.

Put tomorrow (MAÑANA) at the start of the sentence and use the present tense of the verb.

For example;

Tomorrow I will go to the beach.

MAÑANA, voy a la playa.

As in English there are subject pronouns i.e.

SINGULAR

I    -  yo

you-  tÚ

he, she, it  =  él, ella, usted.

PLURAL

us –   nosotros (nosotras)

you   – vosotros (vosotras)

them, they = ellos, ellas, ustedes

Normally these subject pronouns are only used for emphases and are put in front of the verb. As you will have noticed there are 6 parts in the conjunction of the verb and in Spanish each part  confirms which person or group or thing is doing the action, therefore dispensing with the personal pronoun.
