Counting numbers is simple and easy with a little practice.
Let’s start with the numbers from 1 to 20. The pronunciation (発音) from 13 to 19 is a little difficult. The sound “teen” is very important. Learn the word “teenager” so you don’t forget. (ティーンエイジャー -英語で語尾に-teenのつく13歳から19歳までの若者を指す)
Pronunciation for the 10s from 10 to 90 is easy with a simple trick. Just read the first number and add the letter “D” at the end, but be careful, 20 and 80 are pronounced differently.
If numbers like 13 and 30 sound the same, listen again. 13 (thir-Teen) has a longer sound and 30 (thir-D) has a shorter sound.
Now you know how to say the numbers easily. Can you count from 1 to 100? Give it a try. It is simple, but it takes some practice so don’t rush. Take your time and this practice will help your pronunciation. Have fun!
