Lesson Transcript

Basic Japanese Season 1 , Lesson 11 - Basic Japanese #11: Numbers 20-100
Japanese numbers from 20 to 100.
Hello, welcome back to Hiroko’s one point Japanese lesson.
In this lesson, you are going to learn the Japanese numbers from 20 to 100.
In the previous lesson, you learned the numbers from 11 to 19.
Do you remember the pattern?
Let’s recap by reviewing some numbers from 11 to 19.
12 will be 10 じゅう。 (jū .) 2 に。 (ni.) じゅうに。 (jū ni.)
15 will be 10 じゅう。 (jū .) 5 ご。 (go.) じゅうご。 (jū go.) and
18 will be 10 じゅう。 (jū .) 8 はち。 (hachi.) じゅうはち。 (jū hachi.)
19 will be じゅうきゅう。 (jū kyū.)
and next is 20 but 20 is not じゅう、じゅう。 (jū , jū .) .
Rather 20 is に、じゅう。 (ni, jū .) にじゅう。 (ni-jū .)
so 20 is two 10s, 2 of 10s. So 2 is に。 (ni.) 10 is じゅう。 (jū .) so にじゅう。 (ni-jū .) に、じゅう。 (ni, jū .) にじゅう。 (ni-jū .)
then to get 30, さん、じゅう。 (san, jū .) さんじゅう。 (san jū.)
to get 40 よん、じゅう。 (yon, jū .) よんじゅう。 (yon jū .)
to get 50 ご、じゅう。 (go, jū .) ごじゅう。 (go jū .)
to get 60 ろく、じゅう。 (roku, jū .) ろくじゅう。 (roku jū .)
to get 70 なな、じゅう。 (nana, jū .) ななじゅう。 (nana jū .)
to get 80 はち、じゅう。 (hachi, jū .) はちじゅう。 (hachi jū .)
to get 90 きゅう、じゅう。 (kyū, jū .) きゅうじゅう。 (kyū jū .) .
So to make numbers that are multiples of 10, simply put the numbers in front of 10 like に、じゅう。 (ni, jū .) にじゅう。 (ni-jū .) or さん、じゅう。 (san, jū .) さんじゅう。 (san-jū) .
So for 26, first we say 20 which is 2 10 にじゅう。 (ni-jū .) and then plus 6 which is ろく。 (roku.) .
So にじゅうろく。 (ni-jū roku.) にじゅう、ろく。 (ni-jū , roku.) にじゅうろく。 (ni-jū roku.) .
So for 28, first we have 2 10 にじゅう。 (ni-jū .) and then plus 8 which is はち。 (hachi.) にじゅうはち。 (ni-jū hachi.) にじゅう、はち。 (ni-jū , hachi.) にじゅうはち。 (ni-jū hachi.)
What about 79?
70 is ななじゅう。 (nanajū .) and then add 9 きゅう。 (kyū.) ななじゅうきゅう。 (nama-jū kyū.)
ななじゅう、きゅう。 (nana-jū , kyū.) ななじゅうきゅう。 (nana-jū kyū.)
And finally we have 100. In Japanese, 100 is ひゃく。 (hyaku.)
ひゃ、く。 (hya, ku.) ひゃく。 (hyaku.) .
Okay let’s practice.
I will say the number and give you time to repeat each one.
Ready?
ひゃく、ひゃく。 (hyaku, hyaku..)
きゅうじゅう、きゅうじゅう。 ( kyū-jū , kyū-jū .)
はちじゅう、はちじゅう。 (hachi-jū, hachi-jū. )
ななじゅう、ななじゅう。 (Nana-jū, nana-jū.)
ろくじゅう、ろくじゅう。 (roku-jū , roku-jū .)
ごじゅう、ごじゅう。 (go-jū , go-jū .)
よんじゅう、よんじゅう。 (yon-jū , yon-jū .)
さんじゅう、さんじゅう。 (san-jū , san-jū .)
にじゅう、にじゅう。 (ni-jū , ni-jū .)
Now you’ve mastered the numbers up to 100.
In the next lesson, you are going to master the numbers from 200 to 1000.

Super helpful. Thank you very much. But one thing: I find intonation quite difficult, is there a way to download audio only? So I can carry it with me.

The way we count numbers in Japanese is very similar to Tibetan,in Tibetan we say Nishu,sumchu,zhichu,ngachu,drugchu,well 70 and 80 and 100 are not same,90 is guchu. I’m a Tibetan speaker and I’m very fond of this website.ありがと!
