But *Avoir* has double use. Let us consider the following expressions: 

*avoir soif* = To be thirsty
*avoir chaud* =to be hot 
*avoir froid* =to be cold
*avoir faim* =to be hungry 
*avoir soif* =to be thirsty 
*avoir sommeil* =to be sleepy 
*avoir mal à* =to have an ache 
*avoir ____ ans* =to be __years old 
*avoir peur de* =to be afraid of 
*avoir honte de* =to be ashamed of 
*avoir raison* =to be right 
*avoir tort* =to be wrong 

So, be carefull, do not say: *Je suis 40 ans* when you mean *I am 40 years old*
Rather say: *J'ai 40 ans* = I am 40 years old. 
● *Je suis * when you mean *I am hungry*
Rather say: *J'ai faim* = I am hungry. 
● *elle est raison* when you mean *she is right*
Rather say: *Elle a raison* = *she is right.*
