和別人談論年紀話題時,到底怎麼講才對?講師Rachna於Let’s Talk網站提供給你多個實用的片語。

1.How old are you?

How old is your brother/sister?

這是詢問年齡最普遍的方式。

2.I am 25 years old.

I am 25.

這些則是回答年齡的方式。另外,”I am 25 years of age.”則是非常正式的方式。

而”I am 25 years.”則是錯誤的表達方式。

3.My friend has two sons aged 8 and 10.

My friend has a daughter aged 5.

這兩個句子中,‘aged’是形容詞,後面無須再加上”years old”。

4.My neighbor has a four month old baby.

而非”four months old baby”。

My uncle has a twenty year old daughter.

而非”twenty years old daughter”。

5.談論東西的年紀

My house is 40 years old.

而非”my house is 40”。
My twenty year old car still runs smoothly.

而非”twenty years old car”。

6.不想說明確切年齡時

He is in his early/mid/late twenties.

She is in her teens.

Most students in my class are above/below the age of twenty.

Maria is nearly/almost 40.

John is about 50.

He must be under 18.
