Student or Learner
Please English teachers, help me to understand the difference between these two expressions..
in which situations it's more common to say "me too", and in which ones - "me either"?
you say: I really love ice cream!
I say: Me too!
you say: I don't really care for Brussels sprouts
I say: Me neither!
If I agree with something you say that's positive, it's "me too." If I agree with something you say that's negative, it's "me neither." You will hear "me either" for the second one, but I hear the "neither" form more often. Note that these are both quite informal.
I do, too -- a more formal response for the positive statement.
Neither do I or I don't either -- more formal responses (no difference between them) for the negative statement
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
