When we introduce ourselves Telling Your Age is somehow essential and it is also important to know how to ask about it. In this post we’ll show you some basic expresions that you may find quite useful for this purpose.
If you are talking to someone and you want to know how old they are you can ask: ¿Cuántos años tienes? If you are in a formal situation and want to sound very polite then you ask: ¿Qué edad tiene usted? But keep in mind that you’d only use this with people who are older than you or that you consider have some sort of authority.
Now, if you want to ask for a third person’s age then you’d say: ¿Cuántos años tiene él / ella? (choose él if it’s a man or ella if it’s a woman.)
