• Hi guys.

• In this video I'm going to show you how to read large numbers in English.

• So, can you read this number?

• No?

• Okay, let me show you.

• It's quite simple.

• In English, we have the labels 'trillion,' 'billion,' 'million,' thousand.'

• To read the number, you read the three numbers, and then the label below.

• So, this number is One hundred twenty three trillion, four hundred fifty six billion,

• seven hundred eighty nine million, one hundred twelve thousand, three hundred forty five.

• That's it.

• If the number is smaller, for example if it starts here in the millions, you just read this.

• Seven hundred eighty nine million, one hundred twelve thousand, three hundred forty five.

• Okay?

• So let's practice.

• This is a large number, this one starts in the billions.

• So we have, nine hundred eighty seven billion, six hundred fifty three million, two hundred eleven thousand, five hundred thirty two.

• Six hundred seventy five million, two hundred thirty three thousand, one hundred five.

• Twenty one million, three hundred five thousand, nine hundred eighty nine.

• Four hundred and eight thousand, nine hundred and two.

• Eight million, four hundred twenty thousand.

• Fifty eight thousand, four hundred twenty one.

• Two thousand, nine hundred fifty.

• One thousand, four hundred.

• You can say fourteen hundred also.

• Okay, so if somebody asks you the population of your country, 'how many people are in your country?'

• Lets look at some examples, so I'm in California, so the population of the United States is:

• three hundred nineteen million people.

• The population of Japan right now is about one hundred twenty six million people.

• The population of Korea is about fifty million.

• And the population of China right now is one billion, three hundred eighty five million.

• Now, in this case, we sometimes put a decimal point here and round it.

• So, for example, the population of China is one billion, three hundred eighty five million, or, one point four billion.

• Okay, one point four billion (1.4 billion).

• So, a house in California, that house is about two million three hundred thousand dollars (\$2,300,000), or two point three million dollars.

• Okay so here is the chart with the labels.

• And, hopefully you can read a large number like this now.

• Three hundred seventy eight trillion, two hundred fifty five billion, six hundred eighty fourteen million, twenty five thousand nine hundred eighty four.

• Okay?

• Have a good day!
