Me vs I - English Grammar - Teaching Tips

 

In this video we take a look at the difference between "me" and "I". While they are often used without a problem in normal sentences, they are often used incorrectly in certain situations. For example, in the sentence "can you send the report to Ian and I" the use of "I" is incorrect. It should be "can you send the report to Ian and me" The reason for this is that "I" is a subject pronoun and ?me" is an object pronoun. If you remove Ian from the sentence, it becomes clear that the use of "I" is wrong. You would not say ?can you send the report to I" but you would say "can you send the report to me?". This is an easy trick to see which of the two is the correct one. Watch the video and give it a try.


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

I feel that the most important point made in this unit is that the teachers attitude towards the class will be one of the biggest influences on the success of the students. A teacher with a bad attitude will not motivate and engage the students causing them to not learn as much as they could.This unit is more interactive as it uses videotaped lessons. It's a showcase of what could be considered a good or bad lesson. I like the way the questions were designed. However, the quality of the clips are bad as the picture is kind of blurry and the angle of recording is not very engagingThis was a good refresher of classroom management for me. I was able to re learn about the different management techniques. It was good to remind myself to enjoy the class and show it to the students so they also enjoy being there with you. There were also some good techniques for discipline.
