hi all of you. i'd like to ask a question "which one of this is correct???

my sister is 15 years or my sister is 15"

you must say that :my sister is 15 years old


I think it should be "my sister is 15 years old"

Hi Fatima,

The correct one is the second, 'My sister is 15'.

I hope that helps,

It is a good work. You gave piece of information to our knowledge to update which is  my favorite English lesson in online. But i couldn't find the tasks to answer.


I'm sorry to hear you can't see the exercises. We know that a small number of users are having problems in this way and we are trying to solve this.

Can you tell me what web browser(s) you are using to view this page?

Best wishes,
