常見錯誤 Common Mistake: Me too or me neither?

Posted by Grant Richardson, 4th October, 2015

You can’t always use “Me too”. It depends if you are agreeing with a positive or negative statement.

You use “Me too” to agree with another person’s positive statement:

I’ve seen that movie before.

Me too!

You use “Me neither” to agree with another person’s negative statement:

I didn’t really like it that much.

Me neither!

Instead of “Me too”, you can say “So do/did/have/should I” (depending on the required auxiliary verb: do, did, have or should):

I’ve seen that movie before.

So have I.

I saw it last week.

So did I.

Instead of “Me neither”, you can say “Neither do/did/have/should I” OR “I don’t/didn’t/haven’t/shouldn’t either”:

I haven’t seen that movie.

Neither have I.

OR

I haven’t either.
