English - S2 Homework (Advanced) I/Me Confusion

S2 English homework. Exercise 17.

I/Me Confusion

Copy the following note into your jotter.

Many people become confused about when it is correct to use me' and when it is correct to use I'. I' should be used when you are the subject of (the one doing) the action and me' when you are the object (the one to whom it is done).

E.g. I took the letter from the postman.

The postman gave the letter to me.

E.g. My sister and (I or me?) went to the cinema. ( I is correct)
