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 :)

When I took the quiz, the first 3 times it was buggy on my I-pad. I would press the button and the mark appeared on the next question, not the one I pressed. Then it wouldn’t respond. On my 4th attempt it worked.
