When I introduce myself or when someone asks me, I think I may tell my age.;In English, there are many ways to say things about age.
Therefore, in this article, I will introduce some phrases of age that can be used in daily conversation.
How to say "I'm old"
First, let's take a look at the most basic way of saying "I'm old". The most basic phrase is "~ years old".
For example, if you want to say "I am 30 years old" to the other person, the sentence is "I am thirty years old.". I think that many people learned this expression in junior high school, so I think it's familiar.
Phrases similar to this expression include "a ~ -year-old" and "~ years of age".
"A ~ -year-old" is a very similar expression to "~ years old", but it is characterized by the fact that it has an a, each word is hyphenated, and the year is singular. ..
This comes from the fact that the rules for adjective nouns are that way. Therefore, nouns such as man/woman are actually omitted after this expression. Be careful not to confuse it with "~ years old" because of such differences.
About words such as "~ dai"
Next, let's look at about words such as "~ dai". When you say "~ dai", it is basic to add "s" to the number.
If you are in your twenties, you will say twenties, and if you are in your thirties, you will say thirties. Also, when we say "~ dai", we may say "~ early generation" or "~ late generation".
It is customary to add "early" to the current expression for "-early generation", "mid" for "-mid-generation", and "late" for "-late generation".
In addition, if you want to say "around the age of", use "around". The expressions Alafor and Alasar have become popular these days, but they are derived from "around forty" and "around thirty".
You can also express the same meaning by adding "-ish" to the numbers. When expressing the age with a larger group than these, the phrases such as "young generation" for young people, "middle or advanced age class" for middle-aged people, and "old generation" for older people are used.
It's also a good idea to remember this.
Wording about other ages
So far, we have explained how to express age in general, but let's look at other ways of expressing age.
First of all, I would like to introduce the wording of the child's age. Let's take a look at the baby first.
Generally, the expression "after birth to months" is used, but in English it is expressed by the phrase "a ~ months old baby".
Expressions such as "school child" for school-aged children aged 7 to 12, "early childhood" for children aged 3 to 8 and "midlle childhood" for children aged 9 to 11 may be used.
