Are you saying this is wrong in English? Admitedly I would probably just
have used "me" in place of "I". But then I always thought I was wrong..  I'm
sure we were taught in school that "John and me"/"me and John" was incorrect
and that, "John and I" was correct. I was taught that to have said "me and
John" was rude.

I would probably want to re phrase this in Hol as

 [park]Daq chaH [John] jIH je'e'.   nulegh
John and I in the park. He saw us.

Is that ok in Hol?
Is the -'e' in the right place?
