GRAMMAR PILLS: I or ME? + 'Peter and I' or 'Peter and me'?

💡 Quick answer:

Use I (yo) as the SUBJECT of a clause (como SUJETO)

 {[Peter and I] [went to the cinema yesterday].} (Peter y yo)
        Subject

 (Dialogue at the door) Who is it? –It’s Peter and I(Peter y yo)
                                                 Subjective Complement

Use he/she/it/we/you/they ⇒ as SUBJECT (como SUJETO)

 {[Mary and he] [went to the cinema yesterday].} (Mary y él)
         Subject

Use ME (me/mí) as an OBJECT in a clause (como OBJETO)

 {[Mary] [invited (Peter and me) (to her party)].}
                            Direct Object

→ {[Mary] [told (Peter and me) (that she’s pregnant)].}
                      Indirect Object

→ {[Mary] [bought (a present) (for Peter and me)].}
                                       Object of the Preposition

Use him/her/it/us/you/them  as OBJECT (como OBJETO)

 {[I] [invited (Peter and her) (to my party)].}
                        Direct Object

→ {[I] [told (Peter and her) (that I'm pregnant)].}
                  Indirect Object

→ {[I] [bought (a present) (for Peter and her)].}
                                       Object of the Preposition
