It is important to remember that for pronouns “я” (I) and “ты” (you singular informal) the ending depends on the gender. For example,

  • Я думал I thought (if I am a man)
  • Я думала – I thought (if I am a woman)
  • Ты думал – You thought (I am talking to a male person)
  • Ты думала – You thought (if I am talking to a female)
