Hi teachers,

First person: I, we
Second person: You
Third person: He, she, it, they...

You, she and I are regular in class.
He and we are regular in class.
You, they and we are regular in classes.
They and I are regular.
You and they are regular.
Have I used personal pronouns correctly?

Many thanks.

First, I'm not a teacher, I'm just a student.
"You, she and I are regular in class.
He and we are regular in class.
You, they and we are regular in classes.
They and I are regular.
You and they are regular"
Are those sentences above just the examples. If they are, I think they are all correct grammatically.
But why do you use "classes" in "You, they and we are regular in classes" , "class" is still fine!
And in "He and we are regular in class" and "You, they and we are regular in classes", just use "we" with a slight nod or glance to the subjects you want to mention!

It is a typo. So I used them all correctly?

"regular in class" does not sound tremendously natural to me. "attend class regularly" would be more usual.

Note also that "regular" has a meaning of "having regular bowel movements", and, to me, saying that someone is "regular", full stop, as in the fourth and fifth sentences, tends to conjure up that meaning. I may be unusual in this respect!

I agree with Dozy - that is the first thing that came to my mind also - great minds think alike!
