Let me bring you up to speed without a lot of bla-bla: during class with the 6th graders, we were working on how to ask and tell someone's age. "How old are you?" "How old is your mother?" "How old is your father?"
Well, Marina answered "My mother is thirty-two." Marie said "My father is thirty-four."
Maxime: "My father is thirty-five." Alexia: "My father is forty-seven." Louise: "My mother is forty-two."
