    May I know how old are you/you are?

    "May I know how old are you/you are?"

    When I was at school, my teacher said the correct one was "May I know how old are you" but I don't think so. Was my teacher right?

    No, your teacher was wrong.

    It must be either "May I know how old you are?" or "How old are you?"

    I'm sorry. I clicked "Go back" and accidentally posted the same thread once again.

    No problem. I didn't notice the close time of the two postings.
