Aquí es una explicación sencilla:

I = sujeto. Me = objeto. ¿Cuál es mejor para escribir mi oración?

Vamos a aprender por ejemplo:
1. ¿Cuál oración es correcta?:

"They are going to send my wife and I a package". o
"They are going to send me a package".
(La oración correcta significa: Ellos van a mandarnos un paquete.)
La segunda oración es correcta. ¿Por qué? La regla dice que una oración necesita hacer sentido si se quita "la persona y" antes de la letra "I". Por eso en nuestro caso: "They are going to send I a package," no es correcto.

2.Esta no es correcta: "JIM AND ME are going to the beach". ¿Por qué? Se quita 'Jim and'. En este caso, también cambia el verbo para convertirse en forma singular de la primera persona. Entonces lee la oración otra vez:
"ME am going to the beach". Es obvio que no es correcto. Debe ser: "Jim and I are going to the beach". (Jim y yo vamos a ir a la playa.)

3. Esta puede ser equivocado: "The best one is sent to Ashley and I".
Una manera fácil para recordar esta es que "I" no sigue un verbo. "I" debe siempre suena natural si es escrito después de un verbo. La forma correcta de esta oración es "The best one is sent to Ashley and me". (El mejor es enviado a Ashley y a mí.)

Here is a simple explanation:

I=subject. Me=object. Which one is best for writing my sentence?

Let’s learn by example:
1. Which sentence is correct: "They are going to send my wife and I a package". or
"They are going to send me a package". (The correct sentence means: They are going to send us a package.) The second sentence is correct. Why? The rule says that a sentence needs to make sense if one removes "the person and" before the letter "I". Therefore in our case: "They are going to send I a package," is not correct.

2.This would be wrong: JIM AND ME are going to the beach.
Why? Remove Jim and. In this case, also adjust the verb to match single form of first person. Then re-read the sentence:
Me am going to the beach. It's obvious this is not correct. It should be: Jim and I are going to the beach.

3. This can be wrong: "The best one is sent to Ashley and I".
Easy way to remember this is that I does not follow a verb. I should always make sense if it is followed by a verb.
Correct form is "The best one is sent to Ashley and me".
