How to say me in French

“Moi” — correct pronunciation

The pronunciation of moi is “mwah”. In fact, all words containing the letter combinations “oi” sound like wah. In the following video, Julien Miquel demonstrates how to say “c’est moi” (it’s me).

“Moi” — definition and precise meaning

The precise meaning of “moi” is me. Moi is a stressed pronoun. This means that the word moi commonly (but not always) is preceded by prepositions such as avec (with), pour (for), sans (without), contre (aginst), sur (on) and chez (at the home or).

Here are some example sentences where moi appears as a stressed pronoun using the above prepositions.

Est-ce que tu viens avec moi?

Are you coming with me?

Here are some more examples:

  • Est-ce que tu viens avec moi? Are you coming with me?
  • Il travaille pour moi. He works for me.
  • Ils ne partent pas sans moi. They’re not leaving without me.
  • Êtes-vous contre moi? Are you against me?
  • Mes amis comptent sur moi. My friends count on me.
  • Elle dort chez moi. She’s sleeping at my place.

“Moi!” can also appear standing on its own to mean “me!” For example:

Qui aime le fromage? – Moi!

Who likes cheese? – Me?

Qui veut manger de la glace? – Moi!

Who wants to eat some ice cream? – Me!

Moi can also precede the word “je” (I) to add some emphasis. In this context, “moi” can translate to both “personally” and “as for me”.

For example:

Moi, je préfère parler français!

(Personally/As for me,) I prefer speaking French!

Moi can also appear in the context of an imperative mood (command). For example:


Speak to me!

Negative commands, however use “me”. Here are the previous there examples in the negation:

Ne me parle pas!

Don’t speak to me!

“Me” — definition and exact meaning

The other way to say “me” in French is “me” (pronounced muh).

In the following sentences, the “me” serves the role as a direct object pronoun. This means that it mean “at me” and “me” for verbs not followed by the preposition à. For example:

Vous me voyez.

You see me.

In the following sentences, “me” is an indirect object pronoun meaning me for verbs followed by the preposition à.

Elle me parle.

She speaks to me.

Note that for the above sentences, you cannot use “à moi”. This would be considered wrong and improper French.

For example, you cannot say “Elle parle à moi” to say “She speak to me”. You must say “Elle me parle”, as stated in the examples above.

The verb “penser” (to think), however, works differently. To say, “She think about me”, you would say: “Elle pense à moi”. You cannot say “Elle me pense” in French.

This page covers all of the direct and indirect object pronouns in detail.

Me too and me neither

The rules for “me too”, “so am”, “so do I” and me neither are a bit tricky in French.

If somebody makes an affirmative statement and you want to agree, you must say “moi aussi”:

moi aussi

me too, so am, do I

For example, if somebody says “J’aime manger la glace” (I like to eat ice cream), and you want say either “me to” or “so do I”, you must say “moi aussi”.

However, if somebody makes a statement in the negation, such as “Je n’aime pas le chou-fleur” (I don’t like cauliflower) and you want to agree saying “me neither” you must say “moi non plus”.

You cannot use “moi aussi” to say “me too” when agreeing with a negative statement. You must use “moi non plus”.

One more example: “Je n’aime pas étudier la grammaire française” (I don’t like studying French grammar). Agreeing statement: “Moi non plus” (me too or me neither).
