The two personal pronouns I and me are often used wrongly, usually in sentences in which I is being used with another noun. Here are some tips to help you get it right:

1. Use the pronoun I, along with other subjective pronouns such as we, he, she, you, and they,when the pronoun is the subject of a verb:

  • He went to bed.
  • We waited for the bus.
  • Budi and I are going for a coffee.

In the last example, the pronoun I, together with the proper noun Budi, forms the subject of the sentence, so you need to use I rather than me.

2. Use the pronoun me, along with other objective pronouns such as us, him, her, you, and them,when the pronoun is the object of a verb:

  • Andy thanked them.
  • The dog followed Budi and me to the door.

In the last example, the pronoun me, together with the proper noun Budi, forms the object of the verb follow, so you need to use me rather than I.

3. Use the pronoun me, along with other objective pronouns such as us, him, her, you, and them,when the pronoun is the object of a preposition:

  • Wati spent the day with Harti and me.

Me, together with Harti, forms the object of the preposition with, so you need to use the pronoun me rather than the pronoun I.
