  • YUU ASAKURA: Let's review the number from 1 to 10. Repeat after me, ichi, ni, san, shi

  • or yon, go, roku, shichi. Shichi can be nana so you can use either one, shichi, nana. And

  • next one, hachi, kyu, jyu. Yes, you can repeat from 1 to 10 really quick, ichi, ni, san,

  • shi, go, roku, shichi, hachi, kyu, jyu. Let's practice that. And I will teach you how to

  • read the number after 10. So let's say 11. Eleven is 10 plus 1. So I will read it: jyu-ichi.

  • Makes sense? So 12 will be jyu-ni; 13 will be jyu-san. It goes on to jyu-kyu, 19. So

  • 20 is--so two 10s, so it will be ni-jyu, okay? So 21 is ni-jyu-ichi; 22 is ni-jyu-ni; and

  • it goes on to 29. So 30 is san-jyu; 40 is yon-jyu. Shi-jyu is a little bit old style

  • so let's stick to yon-jyu. Okay? And 50 is go-jyu, and roku-jyu, nana-jyu. Shichi-jyu

  • is also a little bit obsolete so let's stay away from that. And hachi-jyu, kyu-jyu. So

  • 99 will be? That's correct. That's kyu-jyu-kyu. So we'll learn after 100 in next--in future

  • lesson. But for now, let's remember from 1 to 99.
