DUOLINGO: Please fix this.
This answer does not allow us to write proper English. In American English, It is totally against the rules to say “me and my friend.”
“I and my friend” is barely closer to correct, but those who speak properly never put ourselves first. It's not rude. It's just really bad grammar.
Technically, I, HE & SHE are Subjective Nouns - used only as the subject of the sentence. I like math. He likes math. ME, HIM & HER are Objective Nouns - used in the objective case as the object of the subject. Me as direct object: He threw me. Me as Indirect Object He gave me the ball. Me as object of preposition He threw the ball to me. He threw the ball over me, around me, at me…
For learners of English - Here is one helpful clue. Do you say, "Me like math"? No. Then you don't say "Me and my friend like math."
Please fix this error. Thank you.
