      Heyho :)

      Im German and i read something that got me confused in terms of my english.

      It said "I can see the gap of strengh between him and I now"

      Shouldnt it be "I can see the gap of strengh between him and me now"?

      Thanks for answers :)

      Regards

      PS: If i made any other mistakes, feel free to tell me, i really want to improve my english :)

      Hi,

      My English is far from the best, as i'm from Liverpool :D (we have our own language, near enough)

      I think it should be "I can see the gap of strengh between him and myself now".

      They all work fine when speeking, but I think the one I written is the correct way when writing it down.

      In Liverpool we would say " lad, I can see how shite you are compared to me, so gerragrip" :D

      Regards,
      Stiev

      yeah it's true
      i've been to liverpool and it was enough to hear smth like "howolru" sounding like one word actually being "how old are you"
      :)
      btw Liverpool FC ftw!

      but if you are object then it is me

      ex.
