    How do you say, "Who am I ? " In French?


    And no, don't go to Google translate, because it is wrong.


    Thanks.

    Also, who ever is skilled in the French language, I'd like some help please, so please tell me if you are so I can send you some Private messages on some help with translating and checking some of my French work. Thanks ^^

    I didn't use google translate, from what i know it is Qui suis je as the qui is related to the subject and not the complement, otherwise it would be que, but its qui, and its a question so you invert it.

    That's the correct French, regardless of whether or not it was obtained using Google Translate.

    You could go for Est-ce que je suis qui?, if you didn't fancy the inversions, or you could simply say Je suis qui? with correct intonation, although that would switch the emphasis a little.

    That having been said, I don't see anything wrong with the suggestions so far.

    It actually is "Qui suis-je ?", or if you like "Je suis qui ?"

    Ok, a little test

    How do you say: "Hi, I am 14 years old and I really enjoy reading Dan Brown novels because they are very sophisticated, unlike many other authors."

    if you're asking us what it is, you can't go telling us we're wrong as (im guessing) the people here, as well as I, have french qualifications, i have ones beyond french A2 where you have to speak fluantly to get an A on the old course. WHy are you so sure that we're wrong
