    Hi everyone.

    I wanna know if my sentence " 7 days left before I turn 16 " is right, because I'm not sure...

    I think so, but let's an English native speaker tell us

    It sounds right. but "7 days left before I turn 16" isn't really a sentence... unless it's used in conversation.

    There are 7 days left before I turn 16 -> that would be more like a sentence.

    It could be the beginning of a sentence:

    Seven days before I turn 16 I will leave on my trip, so I'll celebrate my birthday while traveling.

    PS Normally we would simply say A week before... (8 jours avant... In English a week lasts only 7 days!)
