Question abt grammar

Is it correct? "J'ai faim parce que je ne mange pas le déjeuner"

Hi Hà Thu,

Chris is right your sentence doesn't make any sense unless 'avoir faim' is the result of something which happened in the past or happens on a regular basis like -

J'ai toujours faim parce que je ne mange jamais rien pour le déjeuner = I am always hungry because I never have any lunch 

Hope this helps!

If you want to say: I am hungry because I didn't have lunch, I would translate it like this:

J'ai faim parce que je n'ai rien mangé pour le déjeuner.

But there are several other options as well.
