Me in French :: Me vs Moi

How to say Me in French

In English we use one word “me” and it is always after the verb:

The video and the script:

 

  • Give me
  • Don’t give me
  • He gives me
  • Could you give me?

In French, sometimes Moi or Me, what is the rule?

The Rule:

With an affirmative imperative sentence, we use moi placed after the verb,
In all other cases, it is “me” or m’, placed before the verb.

Examples:

To show: montrer

  • He showed me: il m’a montré
  • Show me: montre-moi or montrez-moi

To send: envoyer

  • He sends me: il m’envoie
  • Don’t send me: ne m’envoie pas, ne m’envoyez pas
  • Send me: envoie-moi, envoyez-moi/
