  5. "Ela tem só dezoito anos."

"Ela tem dezoito anos."

Translation:She is only eighteen years old.

March 6, 2013



One of the other accepted translations is "She is only eighteen years." That sounds really strange in English...and it looks like duo doesn't accept numbers, I wrote "She is only 18." Purposely done to make you write the word instead of the number? Ah, reminds me of school. :P


I'm confused why "tem" is used instead of "é" ? Why not ela é só dezoito anos or ela está só dezoito anos ?


I think "She is only eighteen" is acceptable
