Is it considered slightly impolite to ask for someone's age in your country?

In much of England, I'd say yes. It's also not really polite to ask about income, or religion, or relationships, unless you already know the person quite well. Of course not every English person is polite!

That's interesting Saverio. I didn't know about China!

Oh right, I didn't know Kerem. It's the same in Italy. At least in my region it is.

I think it's the same in the whole country.
But I know that in China isn't impolite to ask the age to older women, my chinese teacher told us that's normal to ask. I'd like to know more from natives 🤔
