Talking about family members
As you have probably noticed, in Spanish we use verb TENER to say how old we are:
¿Cuántos años tienes? (How old you are?)
Tengo 45 años. (I am 45 years old.)
We also use verb ESTAR to talk about marital status:
Estoy casado/casada. (I am married.)
Estás soltero/soltera. (You are single.)
Está divorcidado/divorciada. (He/she is divorced.)
When talking about family it is also important to know how to use the possessive adjectives.
Mi hermano se llama Juan.
¿Está casada tu hermana?
Su madre tiene 72 años.
