“How old are you?” in Spanish

When you ask how old someone is in Spanish you’re literally asking them “how many years do you have?”

How old are you?
¿Cuántos años tienes?
¿kwAHn-tohs ahn-yohs tee-ehn-ehs?

You respond with “I have ___ years.”

I’m thirty years old.
Tengo treinta años.
tehn-goh treh-een-tah ahn-yohs.

When you’re meeting people in Spanish speaking countries you probably get asked how old you are sometimes. This is a good question to have a snappy response to.

Her: How old are you?
Her: ¿Cuántos años tienes?
Her: ¿kwAHn-tohs ahn-yohs tee-ehn-ehs?

I usually say:

You: Don’t worry, every part of my body still works… every part.
You: No te preocupes, cada parte de mi cuerpo funciona todavia… cada parte.
You: noh teh preh-oh-koo-pehs kah-dah pahr-teh deh mee kwehr-poh foon-see-ohn-ah toh-dah-vee-ah… kah-dah pahr-teh.

You can use this no matter how old you are.

Better if you say it with a serious face. Misinterpretation is great (especially using another language).

Put some emphasis on the last cada parte.
