That depends on where you and your friend are in the sentence. In colloquial speech me is often used where standard grammar requires I especially when someone else is mentioned too.
Sometimes people use I instead of me because they know me is sometimes wrong, but have not understood the principle.
Me and my friend went to a party last night. [Wrong]

Ellis Maven replied | 05/09/2016

First of all this depends on how proficient you are! I would suggest you make the student to read a short paragraph that should contain at least four unfamiliar words and ask him to paraphrase what he has read. Test him on homophones or homographs:words such as: produce, present, dove, wind, etc. All the best.

If a word has two pronunciations ( I don't think many words have more than 2 pronunciations), standard dictionaries usually list them in the order of their popular usage - the first variation usually is the most widely used form.

If a word has two pronunciations ( I don't think many words have more than 2 pronunciations), standard dictionaries usually list them in the order of their popular usage - the first variation usually is the most widely used form. In certain other cases, the American pronunciation differs from the British pronunciation and that would be indicated clearly in dictionaries. Ex. Vitamin - vi-tuh-min (Brit. Pro.) and vy-tuh-min ( Americ. Pro.) Sometimes, if the same word has two different pronunciations, you have to carefully verify whether they have the same meaning or different meanings. E.g. resume - if pronounced as "rizume", it means " to begin again after a break", whereas if it is used to mean "a summary of details or a curriculum vitae ", it should be pronounced as "'rez-yuu-may", which point is not properly followed by many youngsters attending interviews and so they get a poor rating because of this pronunciation mistake. Hope all those who read this will guard themselves against this mistake. «less

Suggest to him like this : A-shee-sh
"A" to be pronounced like the "A" in America.
"shee" to be pronounced like the "shee" in sheep.
"sh" to be pronounced like the "sh" in dish.

Dear Tushar, there is no proper video but you may watch English movies , television shows , news bulletin in English etc. Watch the lip movements of actors and you should place proper stress on the main word and soon you will learn proper pronunciation

One way is to speak with someone in English on a regular basis, a person who can help you with your use of vocabulary and how to pronounce the words. The other thing would be to watch English TV program.
