    I am not a teacher.

    What do you weigh?
    How much do you weigh?

    Don't forget to duck.

    I am not a teacher or a comedian.

    Sorry. It was a joke. People are often offended by that question.

    Re: Hello,teachers! How to ask the weight?

    Here are some ways to ask about someone's weight:

    1. How much do you weigh?
    2. What's your weight?
    3. How many kilos do you weigh?

    Re: Hello,teachers! How to ask the weight?

    However, you better have a very good reason to ask -- a doctor or the person placing people in seats on a very small airplane.

    It's considered a very personal question and not acceptable in social situations -- like asking age or income.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
