- For Teachers
If I'm 4,5 years old, is it correct to say:
I'm four and a half.
Should I say:
1.I'm four and a half years old
2.I'm four and a half year old
A person of that age would probably say 'I'm nearly 5'; my daughter would have said 'I'll be 6 next year'.
I think the younger we are, the prouder we are of those little fractions.
I'm three and three-eighths.
I'm two and a quarter.
I'm five and three-quarters.
The older we get, the less we take any notice.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
I'm fifty and quite a lot of months. (203, actually)
