'I' should be used as the subject of a sentence whereas 'me" should be used as the object of a sentence.

I am a student. (subject)

She helped me. (object)

Here is a trick I always use to determine situations like this.  (Note:  The answers above are both correct, I'm just expanding past the question.)


Follow the "Me, myself, and I" principle.  When referring to yourself, people tend to have trouble with the me/I issue.  Just remember "me, myself, and I" to figure out the order.  Here is an example:


You should come with me, John, and Grace to the movies.


John, Grace, and I are going to the movies.


"Me" always comes first in a sentence.  "I" always comes last.  (Notice the order of Me, myself, and I.)  Also, "me" is always passive, whereas "I" is always active.


Passive:  "It was done to me."

Active:  "I did it."


So there ya go...an extensive lesson on Me vs. I.

we can use I only for subject and Me for object, such as, I like to watch movies.     You must call me when you will get home.
