Over the next several weeks, we’ll be going live on our FB page every Tuesday at 10AM to provide tips and lessons to improve your English.

We kicked off the first session with me on Tuesday (two days ago), and if you missed it, you can watch the replay here.

I talked about using ‘I’ and ‘me’ in sentences and here’s a quick summary:

  • ‘I’ is used before the verb, while ‘me’ is used after the verb.
  • When there is more than one subject or object, see how it sounds when you remove the other person/people.
  • But make sure you use the correct helping verb (am vs are, was vs were).
  • The usual convention is to place yourself (I/me) last.

Make sure you watch the video to see the examples! There’s also a quiz at the end where you can test yourself.

Have a great rest of your day and we’ll see you live next Tuesday at 10AM!
