Avoir [nombre] ans = To be [number] years old

Avoir [nombre] ans = To be [number] years old

Shouldn't this be changed to the below to avoid any confusion?

Hi Damian,

I see your point, literally it is ‘to have  .... years’ but the correct translation would be, 

to be + age 

Vous correct.

to be = être

être trente trois ans nouveau ahhh.

To be 33 years agao, ahhh.
