    question

    hi!!
    im a new member, and id like to ask: whats the difference between the use of the personal pronouns "I" and "me"?
    for example, can we say: my brother and I?- or -my brother and me?
    which one is correct?
    or can we use both according to a certain context?
    please help me
    kind regards
    isle.

    It depends on the context:

    My brother and I tried to ... [subject]
    It is is generally not considered polite to put yourself first [I and my brother...]

    Our parents gave my brother and me [object] some money.
    That dog belongs to my brother and me[object].

    Also "I and my brother went to a good school" is correct, but rather formal.
    Whereas "My brother and me went to a good school" is less formal, more everyday.
