Using preposition con followed by a pronoun to say with me, you, him, her, us, you (plural), them

In Spanish the preposition con is followed by a pronoun in order to express with me, with you, with him, with her, with us, with you and with them

Have a look and listen to the following examples:

Mi hija siempre viene conmigo al médico.
My daughter always comes to the doctor with me.

¿Estuvo Laura contigo ayer?
Was Laura with you yesterday?

No puedo hablar con él.
I can't speak to him.

Con ella la vida es más fácil.
With her, life is easier.

El abuelo viene con nosotros en el coche.
Grandpa is coming in the car with us.

El bebé duerme con vosotros en la habitación doble.
The baby sleeps with you in the double bedroom.

Comimos con ellos el sábado pasado.
We had lunch with them last Saturday.

Quisiéramos hablar con usted en privado.
We'd like to speak with you in private. ["you" formal singular]

El guía irá con ustedes a la excursión.
The guide will go on the trip with you. ["you" formal plural]

Notice how the first two examples have irregular forms "conmigo" and "contigo". They form a single word and cannot be separated from the preposition con. The rest of the forms are the subject pronouns (él, ella, usted, nosotros, nosotras, vosotros, vosotras, ellos, ellas, ustedes).
