Nothing grammatical dictates the word order. You can say you and we or we and you as you please. Other considerations may make you prefer one or the other.

Thanks

You and we will join the party tonight.

Since this is the question of error identification so there must be an error here.
Could anybody find out the error.
Many Thanks in Advance

Hi,

This is the question of our error identification.

(1) You and we will join the party tonight.

It's said that I last ,you first.

Politeness is a matter of culture, not of grammar. In terms of grammar, either way is fine.

In terms of politeness, I suppose it should be 'You and we'.

However, it's not at all a natural thing to say. More natural is something like 'We will all . . '

Other comments on this sentence.

We usually 'go to' a party, not 'join'.

I'd say ' . . . are going to go to the party' rather than '. . . will go to the party'.

CliveWe usually 'go to' a party, not 'join'.

Hi Clive

I wondered about that too. I actually thought of party in the sense of a search party or something like that when I read the sentence. Still, a little odd to my mind, but can't one join such a party in English?

Thanks!
Please let me confirm whether I have misread your post.
You means that it is more natural to say we and you.
Many Thanks in Advance

No, we and you' or 'you and we' both sound unatural. The 'you' erson wouldn't normally be separated out in this way - they are part of the group so are already included in 'we'.
nona the britNo, we and you' or 'you and we' both sound unatural.

I completely agree.
The reader is incapable to tell if a sentence was written using the correct form of grammar, the accurate vocabulary and the most adequate semantic structure to express the writer's intended meaning, unless the reader knew what the writer meant to say or if it were the same person. Although nothing is grammatically, semantically structure or vocabulary incorrect, I am clueless about what your sentence exactly means. In my opinion of what I guess is the meaning of your sentence, I would use a rhetorical question that embodies exactly what the teacher's eloquent inversion implied politely, and redirect who joins who, not who joins what: "Are you joining me to the party tonight?"
