    Hello!
    How would you say:

    "I know how to play chess."

    Is it:

    "Je sait comment jouer échecs."

    Thanks

    Yes, but if you translate 'Je sais jouer au échecs' in English you've got 'I can play chess', so for your sentence 'I know how to play chess' you could also say "je sais comment jouer aux échecs", as in the French expression 'je sais comment faire ceci'.:)
