The only way to remember this is to say " I have luck, I have wrong, I have right " etc.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Avoir raison / tort / de la chance = To be right / wrong / lucky"

Bonjour Gary, For the most part, that is correct; however, that is not how it would translate from French into English as that is the literal translation. Another case in point is avoir + age. In English we say «I am 15 years old»; however, in French that becomes «j'ai quinze ans» ---> literally, I have 15 years. But in English we would simply state that I am 15 years old. Bonne chance.
