    the order

    If there are two or three pronoun in a sentence, is there has the order?
    for example:
    1.You, he and I are of the same age.
    2.We, you and they are all college students.

    Do they have the certain order or not?
    Is the order different from singular and plural?

    No, there's no order, but generally 'I' is put last.
    These sentences sound strange. Normally, if you know who the people are, you'd simply say, "We are all the same age."
    You could say, "You, Peter and I are all the same age." or "He and I are the same age."
    You'd rarely need three pronouns. But, if you do, just put 'I' last.
