24 Solar Terms – a part of the traditional Chinese calendar in which the year is divided into 24 periods

二十四节气

(èrshí sì jiéqì)

A: Awesome! The 24 Solar Terms were included as an intangible cultural heritage!

厉害了!二十四节气入选非遗了!

(lìhài le!èrshí sì jiéqì rùxuǎn fēiyí le!)

B: Modern people don’t really use them much. All I know about them is that they were a reference for ancient people to carry out agricultural activities.

现代人不常用了吧, 我只知道它是古代人从事农活的参考。

(xiàndài rén bù chánɡyònɡ le ba, wǒ zhǐ zhīdào tāshì ɡǔdài rén cónɡshì nónɡhuó de cānkǎo.)

A: They are still worth consulting nowadays! For instance, it usually gets cold after “small snow.”

现在也还有参考价值呢!比如”小雪”之后一般都会转冷。

(xiànzài yě háiyǒu cānkǎo jiàzhí ne!bǐrú xiǎoxuě zhīhòu yībān dōuhuì zhuǎnlěnɡ.)

B: So in other words, the solar terms can function as a weather forecast.

这么说它还有天气预报的功能。

(zhème shuō tā háiyǒu tiānqì yùbào de ɡōnɡnénɡ.)
