    If we talk about the age we can use two forms:
    a) mam 18 lat (it is more common, it says that "i have 18 year['s experiance in life]" or something like this)
    or b) jestem osiemnastolaktą (girl) lub jestem osiemnastolatkiem (boy) - this is longer and less common, but can be translated into "i am 18"
