No native speaker would ever start a sentence with "I and my wife." There is no grammatical reason for it, but just like we say "black and white" and not "white and black," the "I" will come after the other subject.

Your teacher is wrong about the best choice.

Hi Ahmed!

I think your answers (1-6) are all correct. Your 7th answer is wrong, your teacher is right. For the final answer, I think you are right, and your teacher is wrong. "We will hope we will not have to talk much" sounds odd to me. "We hope we won't have to talk much" sounds much better.

Hope this helps!

Thanks my friend for your help ..
I forget to say that my teacher also said that number 1 is wrong and she chose
number D. I and my wife.

What you think.?

I think you should always put the other person first. therefore I believe "My wife and I" is the correct answer.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I rest my case (:

I agree with your comments, it's what I see too ..
