The English should be "My friend and I", not "I and my friend".

Colloquial English = "Me and my friend" in that specific order

Formal English = "My friend and I" in that specific order

"I and my friend" in that order are not correct in either colloquial or formal English.

I said "saya dan temanku" but it marked me as wrong....

I think that is because you cannot use the formal "saya" and informal "-ku" in the same sentence

Why is Aku not suitable in place of Saya?
