Do you know?
In China, there are different ways of asking other people's age according to the approximate age group he / she is in, e.g."nín duō dà nián jì"(您多大年纪?) is used for elder people; "nǐ jǐ suì"(你几岁?) for children who are less than ten years old and "nǐ duō dà le"(你多大(了)?)" for adults. "suì"(岁) can't be omitted if the age mentioned is below ten.
