1 years old的year为可数名词，其复数形式（＝2岁以上）year后面需加s; 故读成years old; 但当描述2岁以下（＝1岁）时，则需将s拿掉，例如：我1岁＝I am one year old.
2 teens （＝teenagers）指的是13-19 岁的少年， 其中不包括10（ten）， 11（eleven）， 12（twelve）; 因为从13（thirteen）-19（nineteen）的英文词里才有teen这个词尾。
3 在不明确是几岁，但略知是20几、30几或90几岁……可用下列叙述，例如：in her 20s.（＝在她20几岁时）She started to play the piano in her 20s.
4 同上述，若在20出头（＝20-25）就加early, 例如：in her early 20s; 若指的是20靠尾（＝26-29）接近30时，就加late，例如：in her late 20s.
