Lesson Transcript

Japanese numbers from 11 to 19. In this lesson, you are going to master Japanese numbers from 11 to 19. Let’s get started by reviewing the numbers from 1 to 10. いち、い、ち、いち。 (Ichi, i, chi, ichi.) に。 (Ni.) さん、さ、ん、さん。 (San, sa, n, san.) し。 (Shi.) or よん、よ、ん、よん。 (Yon, yo, n, yon.) ご。 (Go.) ろく、ろ、く、ろく。 (Roku, ro, ku, roku.) しち、し、ち、しち。 (Shichi, shi, chi, shichi.) or なな、な、な、なな。 (Nana, na, na, nana.) はち、は、ち、はち。 (Hachi, ha, chi, hachi.) きゅう、きゅ、う、きゅう。 (Kyū, kyu, u, kyū.) じゅう、じゅ、う、じゅう。 (jū, ju, u, jū.) Okay now let’s take a look at how to combine these numbers. To say 11, you say 10 1. 10 is じゅう。 (jū.) 1 is いち。 (ichi.) . So じゅういち。 (jū ichi.) じゅう、いち。 (jū, ichi.) じゅういち。 (jū ichi.) . Okay next, to say 12, 10 is じゅう。 (jū.) 2 is に。 (ni.) so じゅうに。 (jū ni.) じゅう、に。 (jū, ni.) じゅうに。 (jū ni.) So 13 would be じゅう、さん。 (jū, san.) じゅうさん。 (jū san.) 14 would be じゅう、よん。 (jū, yon.) じゅうよん。 (jū yon.) 15 would be じゅう、ご。 (jū, go.) じゅうご。 (jū go.) 16 would be じゅう、ろく。 (jū, roku.) じゅうろく。 (jū roku.) 17 would be じゅう、なな。 (jū, nana.) じゅうなな。 (jū nana.) 18 would be じゅう、はち。 (jū, hachi.) じゅうはち。 (jū hachi.) 19 would be じゅう、く。 (jū, ku.) じゅうく。 (jū ku.) or じゅう、きゅう。 (jū, kyū.) じゅうきゅう。 (jū kyū.) . Okay let’s practice. I will say the numbers and give you time to repeat each one. Ready? じゅういち、じゅういち。じゅうに、じゅうに。 (jū ichi, jū ichi. jū ni, jū ni.) じゅうさん、じゅうさん。じゅうよん、じゅうよん。 (jū san, jū san. jū yon, jū yon.) じゅうご、じゅうご。 (jū go, jū go.) じゅうろく、じゅうろく。 (jū roku, jū roku.) じゅうなな、じゅうなな。 (jū nana, jū nana.) じゅうはち、じゅうはち。 (jū hachi, jū hachi.) じゅうきゅう、じゅうきゅう。 (jū kyū, jū kyū.) Also you can say じゅうし。 (jū shi.) for 14 and じゅうしち。 (jū shichi.) for 17 and じゅうく。 (jū ku.) for 19. So you must have noticed the pattern and the Japanese numbers are getting easier right? In the next lesson, you are going to master Japanese numbers from 20 to 100. じゃあね。 (jā ne.)

Hey everyone!

Before, you learned numbers 1-10, and now it’s numbers 11-19! Numbers in Japanese are not that hard once you learn the patterns😄

Hi Hilda,
Thank you for your comment!

That’s a good question.
9 is read “ku” or “kyū”. Either of them is acceptable in many cases, but not in some cases. When it comes to age, for example, “kyū-sai”(9 years old) is used while “ku-sai” is not used.
The same happens to 19.

Keep studying with JapanesePod101.com

日本語を学ぶ唯一の難しい部分は、それが数学のように私の脳から抜け出すのはとても簡単だということです。私は1日5回練習します。😅😅😅😜

Ohayou
Is there a reason for 19 having two ways? Why ku rather than kyu? Does that happen with 9 as well?

Hi Pablo,

Thank you for your message.

Depending on your browser, it might ask for an authorization to use your microphone.

If so, please say “yes”. Then, listen to the native voice.
Click on the round button to start the recording and to stop it.

At this stage, you can listen to your try, retry if needed and compare with the native voice.
Hope this helps!

PS: The voice recording tool is developed by Flash, and you need access to the site on your PC or Mac to enjoy the feature.
