Vocabulary Builder – Age


Hello! In this lesson, we will learn several nouns, verbs and adjectives in English which are used to describe someone's age. We have already learned how to talk about age in a previous lesson.

Remember that nouns are words which refer to a person, place, or thing. Remember that adjectives are words which modify nouns or pronouns.

Adjectives give us more information about a noun or a pronoun. Remember that verbs indicate an action or a state of being. Let us look at the most common words and phrases to tell age in English.

Listen carefully to the pronunciation of each word and watch the shape of my mouth as I speak. Then, say each word while watching your own mouth on the webcam. If you do not have your webcam connected, simply practice repeating the words.
