Learn English – use “I just got 22 years old”


In my mother language, I can say "I got 18 years old today".

I want to use the same concept in English, but I googled the sentence structure, and did not get a lot of hits.

So I was wondering, is it okay to use it this way, or is there a real correct way for it?

I got 18 years old today"

//warning: not a native speaker.

"I've turned 22 years old today"(probably more correct) or "I've become 22-years old today".

"Just got 22 years old" sounds like you're talking about somebody else - to me it sounds like "the only person present at this location is 22 years old".
