What’s your Chinese Zodiac?

你的属相是什么?

It’s not only to ask you Zodiac, but also to ask your age politely.We know it is OK to ask children how old they are, but it is not polite to ask old people about  their age, especially women. Haha, you can ask indirectly, such as “What’s your Chinese Zodiac? “.

这句话不仅在询问你的属相,也礼貌地问到了你的年龄。我们知道问孩子多大了是没有问题的,但是如果去问老人多大了就不太礼貌了,尤其是针对女人。哈哈,你可以换种方式达到目的,比如说“你的中国属相是什么?”

You can know it from the picture above。

从上图你可以知道,即使你是第一次接触。

 

Chinese people name each year with an animal, which is the animal sigh system.  We call it “Sheng-xiao”, which is something similar to your astrology signs.

中国人为每年命名了一种动物,这就是生肖系统。我们叫它“十二生肖”,这类似于西方的占星术。
