   To find your Chinese zodiac birthsign (important to discover prospects for marital happiness) first find the year you were born. Go along the row to the left and discover your lucky sign. For instance, if you were born in 1967, you belong to the Sign of the Sheep. Sheep are guaranteed wedded bliss when paired with Boars, or so the ancient wisdom tells us...

你屬甚麼?
我屬龍.
他屬兔.

你幾歲?
我二十二歲.

Nǐ shǔ shénmo? Wǒ shǔ lóng.
Tā shǔ tù.

Nǐ jǐ suì?
Wǒ èrshíèr suì.

What sign are you (You belong what)?
I am a dragon.
He is a rabbit.

How old are you (You how many years)?
I'm twenty-two (I twenty-two years).

 

你的生日是哪一天?


你的生日是幾月幾日?



你在哪年生的?

Nǐde shēngrì shì něi yī tīan?


Nǐde shēngrì shì jǐ yuè jǐ rì?



Nǐ zài nǎ nían shēng de?
What is your birthdate?
  (Your birthday is which day?)

What month and day were you born?
   (Your birthday is how many months,
   how many days?)

How old are you?
  (You at what year born?)

   Older Chinese probably fib about their age just as much as Americans do, but if someone asks you your age, whatever you do, don't say:


三十二. Wǒ shì sānshíèr. I am thirty-two (thirty-two whats?)

   This doesn't make any sense in Chinese. Instead, say:


你三十二歲. Wǒ sānshíèr suì.

I am thirty-two (I thirty-two years).
