Lesson Transcript

Japanese Numbers from 1 to 10. Hello welcome back to Hiroko’s one point Japanese lessons. In just a few minutes, you are going to master the Japanese numbers from 1 to 10. Japanese numbers are very easy once you know the numbers from 1 to 10. This lesson is critical. So let’s get started. いち。い、ち。一。 (Ichi. I, chi. Ichi.) に。 (Ni.) さん。さ、ん。さん。 (San. Sa, n. San.) よん。よ、ん。四。 (Yon. yo, n. Yon.) or し。 (Shi.) ご。 (Go.) ろく。ろ、く。六。 (Roku. Ro, ku. Roku.) なな。な、な。七。 (Nana. Na, na. Nana.) or しち。し、ち。七。 (Shichi. Shi, chi. Shichi.) はち。は、ち。八。 (Hachi. Ha, chi. Hachi.) きゅう。きゅ、う。九。 (Kyū. Kyu, u. Kyū.) じゅう。じゅ、う。十。 (Jū. Ju, u. Jū.) Okay now repeat after me. I will say the numbers and give you time to repeat each one. いち、一. (Ichi, ichi.) に、二. (Ni, ni.) さん、三. (San, san.) よん、四. (yon, yon.) or し、四. (Shi, shi.) ご、五. (Go, go.) ろく、六. (Roku, roku.) しち、七. (Shichi, shichi.) or なな、七. (Nana, nana.) はち、八. (Hachi, hachi.) きゅう、九。 (Kyū, kyū.) じゅう、十. (jū, jū.) Great job. Now it’s time for Hiroko’s tip. Japanese kids usually learn their times table using rhythm like this. にいちがに。 (Niichi ga ni.) ににがし。 (Nini ga shi.) にさんがろく。 (Nisan ga roku.) にしがはち。 (Nishi ga hachi.) にごじゅう。 (Nigo jū.) Okay let’s recap with practice. I will say a number in English and you will say the number in Japanese, ready? 10 じゅう。 (Jū.) 9 きゅう。 (Kyū) 8 はち。 (Hachi.) 7 なな。 (Nana.) or しち。 (Shichi.) 6 ろく。 (Roku.) 5 ご。 (Go.) 4 し。 (Shi.) or よん。 (Yon.) 3 さん。 (San.) 2 に。 (Ni.) 1 いち。 (Ichi.) Great job. Now you’ve mastered Japanese numbers from 1 to 10. In the next lesson, you are going to learn the Japanese numbers from 11 to 19.

Hi Pablo,

Thank you for posting! We’re glad you enjoyed the lesson on numbers!

Just a minor correction (it may have been a mistype😄 ) : 8 is “hachi” as you can check out in the Lesson Notes pdf.

Keep up the good work studying Japanese and please let us know if you have any questions. We’ll be glad to help😄

Hi Justin,
Thank you for the comment!

Your question is interesting. I’ve never think of that so far.
We don’t use “ga” in 2×5 for some reason…
I guess it is easy to say without “ga”.
For such cases, we say “語呂がいい(goro ga ii)”, meaning “sounds pleasing to the ear”👍

In the last line of the language tip is there no “ga” for equals or is it a special example? It says “ni go ju.”
