how to say ages in Finnish? Hello, I am trying to learn Finnish at home. But I don't have any books yet. My current teacher is google translator hahaha.... But I will get some books soon. Ok, the question is how to say " I'm 24 years old."? Is it " Olen kaksikymmentäneljä vuosi vanha"? or something else? Because in French, people say " J'ai 24 ans" ( I HAVE 24 years old). They use "have" instead of "be". in Chinese, we say "我24岁" ( I 24 years old) There isn't a verb in between.

Vuotias is the word you're looking for. "Minä olen kaksikymmentäneljä vuotias"

You can also say "Olen kaksikymmentäneljä vuotta vanha." "Vuotta" is the accusative case of the word "vuosi". Kids say: "Olen neljä." "I am four." Well, I could say also: "Olen kolmekymmentäseitsemän." :) So, the verb is "be". You could check out the -site. They have a free trial period. Maybe you find some material. At least the Greek page is nice... You could also google "Finnish as a second language", in Finnish "suomi toisena kotimaisena". The vast majority or Finnish material is found, of course, here in Finland.
