    Question correct or not?

    In a lesson with my ESL student we came across this sentence and
    I was not sure that the word oldest sounded right

    My two oldest brothers cooked dinner last night

    Can you please help

    Only one person can be the oldest/eldest. If you have two brothers and they are both older than you, they are your older brothers.
