INDEED A VERY INTERESTING LANGUAGE but why do we use avoir instead of etre
This question relates to:French lesson "Avoir faim / soif = To be hungry / thirsty"

Bonjour Daniel !
In French, the expression is literally "to have hunger / to have thirst", hence the use of "avoir" instead of "être" :)
Bonne journée !
Thank you very much Aurelie.

J'ai is from avoir and means "I have"
Je suis is from être and means "I am"
Of course, being French, there are excpetions to this... : )
