    Red face Me or I

    Hi I am new to this website and hoping someone show me the corerct usage of "I" and "me".

    Do I write "Let Jack and I know when you will be here" or "Let Jack and me know when you will be here".

    Thanks

    Re: Me or I

    You should use 'me' in the sentence you provided.

    A simple check can be carried out to decide whether you need a subject pronoun such as I, he, she, etc. or not: Try to use 'we' instead of jack and I/me if it doesn't sound right try using 'us'. If 'us' works, then you need to use 'me'.

    Hi, Dushan!

    Take Jack out of the sentence and see what you get!

    Would you say: "Let ME know when you will be here." Or, would you say: "Let I know when you will be here."

    The correct pronoun to use is me.
