Cicadas can be found almost everywhere in the world. In some places, people eat cicadas. In China, their shells are used in medicine. The English word “cicada” comes from Latin for “tree cricket”. Cicadas spend most of their lives underground, and then come out and shed their skins to become adults. They are very noisy in summer. Did you hear a lot of cicadas this summer?

蝉は、ほぼ世界中どこにでもいます。一部の地域では蝉を食べます。中国では蝉の抜け殻を薬に使います。英語の「cicada」という単語は、ラテン語の「tree cricket 木のコオロギ」からきています。一生のうちの大半を地中で過ごした後、地上に出て脱皮し成虫になります。夏の間、とてもうるさいですね。今年、たくさん蝉の鳴き声を聞きましたか?
