There is no equivalence in English for tú/ti.

"Tú" is for subject pronouns, as in "You are invited".

"Ti" must be used instead of "tú" after most prepositions (a, contra, desde, hasta, hacia, por, para,...), except "entre" and "según".

"Te", on the other hand, is used for object pronouns, like in English "He likes him" (and not "He likes he"), where "he" is a subject pronoun, and "him" is an object pronoun.

Lazarus, I think you meant to say "after"'?

Mi maestro, lazarus makes some typo errors sometimes. Understandable. smile

"Ti" must be used instead of "tú" in front of most prepositions (a, contra, desde, hasta, hacia, por, para,...), except "entre" and "según".

"Te", on the other hand, is used for object pronouns, like in English "He likes him" (and not "He likes he"), where "he" is a subject pronoun, and "him" is an object pronoun.

So if you are a grammar nerd you could say that "tú" is "you" used as a subjective pronoun and "ti" is "you" used as an objective pronoun. "Ti" must have a preposition before it.

They both mean you, but I think tú is used as a subject, and "ti? is used after 'para? and 'de.?
-Esta Coca-cola es para ti.
-Tú tienes mi bicicleta.
