Bonjour Linda,

Très bien ! Quelques petites corrections : je suis née au Pays de Galles.

Merci! I was trying to say I was born in Wales so wouldn't I need to use the past tense of etre? Not sure about this.

No, naître is a strange verb in French. It means "to be born," so the passé composé, je suis née, means I was born.

J'étais née is the past perfect: I had been born.
