FR: How much do stamps cost?

Combien est-ce que les timbres coûtent?

Bonjour,

Is it grammatically correct to use est-ce que in this type of question? I feel that inversion is the preferred way, but is it acceptable to use est-ce que?

Merci d'avance

    It is acceptable, yes, and more common. But the preferred way is :
    "Combien coûtent les timbres ?"

    This sentence sounds really weird to me... even if it is gramatically correct, I would suggest you not to use it.

    On the other hand, you can say :
    Combien est-ce que cela/ça coûte ?

    Good luck with French grammar!
