Great question! Remember that "to be cold" is avoir froid in French, not "être froid." This applies to all tenses: Elle a froid - She is cold. Elle avait froid - She was cold. Elle aurait eu froid - She would have been cold. etc. More about this expression: Avoir chaud / froid = To be hot / cold

Parfait! J'ai oublié que avoir froid est la response juste. Merci. J'ai appris quelque chose aujourd'hui comme tous les jours que j'utilise Kwizbot.
