    Thumbs up Capital and Lower Case Letter

    Hi, Teachers!

    It's an old question that I have brought since I started to study English

    Why do we have to use capital letter when we write the pronoun "I"?

    Are there other cases that we have to use capital letter?

    Exemple: My friend and "I" went to the Theater

    "I" liked it so much but "he" didn't

    Re: Capital and Lower Case Letter

    See if this article helps you out:
    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.
