Do you know when to use "me", "myself" and "I"? It may not look like such a big deal but knowledge about how to use them correctly can help you in different sections of exams such as TOEFL, IELTS or even GMAT and GRE.
This amusing animated video will help you understand how to make a distinction between ‘me’, ‘myself’ and ‘I’ and will show you exactly where each one should be placed in a sentence. Most people are tempted to use these words interchangeably, because they all refer to the same thing. But in fact, each one has a specific role in a sentence: ‘I’ is a subject pronoun, ‘me’ is an object pronoun, and ‘myself’ is a reflexive or intensive pronoun. The video explains what each role reveals about where each word belongs.
There are also examples given from other languages like Latin and Russian, where most nouns have different forms that distinguish subjects from objects, whereas in English that’s only true of pronouns. So as long as you can distinguish subjects from objects you will be able to identify what belongs where.
A lot of grammar examples are given in this video through the funny animated characters that makes it amusing to watch and easy to understand and memorize the information. The animation in this video is made by Karrot Animation who made a lot of the famous Cartoon Network characters like those from Adventure Time series if you are a fan.
