When to Use the Personal Pronouns I and Me

By | July 23, 2014

When do we use the personal pronouns I or me?

We use the word “I” when the pronoun is the subject of the verb. Meanwhile, we use the “me” if we are referring to the object of the verb.

Quick and dirty tip!

If you are confused, try to temporarily take out the other subject and read out loud. If it sounds nice, then it should be the correct one.

Example: (I, me) will go to Dumaguete with Jhody.

1. I will go to will go to Dumaguete with Jhody.
2. Me will go to Dumaguete with Jhody.
