    Smile Little question please...

    Hello. I'm new here, I don't even know if I'm making this right so... I have a question. I'm no teacher or student I just love to learn other languages I don't know why I just do.
    My question is: how would it be the correct way of saying this: Alicia, Josh and me, or, Alicia, Josh and I?
    Thanks a lot in advance and by the way if there is any other correction you might find in my email please, correct me. Because I really like to learn it well. :)
    Patiently, blackunicorn.

    P.S.: I don't know how to end a letter in English so... sorry if somethings wrong 😅

    My question is: how what would it be the correct way of saying this: "Alicia, Josh and me" (no comma here) or (no comma here) "Alicia, Josh and I"?

    Thanks a lot in advance and, by the way, if there is are any other correction errors you might find in my email post, please (no comma here) correct me them. Because I really like to learn. it well. :)

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections and comments above.

    You need to give us full sentences to consider. It's not a straight choice between your two options. It will depend on the rest of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Little question please...

    Both phrases can be correct in the right context.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Little question please...

    Here you need to understand the difference between subject pronouns (I) and object pronouns (me).

    As others have said, both will work, depending upon whether the people in question are being used as the subjects of the sentence, or as some kind of object.

    Try posting a full sentence, so we can clarify better. Mistakes help you learn, so don't be afraid to make them!

    Re: Little question please...

    If I were to end an informal letter, I'd go with:
    With love,
    Alicia, Josh and me
