Lesson 22

Monday, March 30th, 2020

Numbers 1000~

We call 1,000 “sen”.

 

For example, we call 2,354 as “ni-sen-sann-byaku-go-jyuu-yon”.

Please, do the simple math.  2,354 = 2 x 1,000 + 3 x 100 + 5 x 10 + 4 and read the numbers without “+” and “x”.

 

Please, pay attention to 1,111 becasue 1,111 = 1,000 + 100 +10 +1, not 1,111 = 1 x 1,000 + 1 x 100 + 1 x 10 +1

Therefore, the pronunciation is “sen-hyaku-jyuu-ichi”, not “ichi-sen-ichi-hyaku-ichi-jyuu-ichi”.

Lesson 21

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

Numbers 100~

We say 100 as “hyaku”.

 

101: hyaku-ichi

Since 101=100+1, you can simply read 100 and 1 without “+”

 

In the same way,

102: hyaku-ni

103: hyaku-san

104: hyaku-yon

 

110: hyaku-jyuu

111: hyaku-jyuu-ichi  *111=100(hyaku)+10(jyuu)+1(ichi)

 

How about 213?

 

Since 243=2×100+4×10+3

You can merely read 2(ni),100(hyaku), 4(yon),10(jyuu) and 3(san)

Ni-hyaku-yon-jyuu-san

 

Did you get this?

Lesson 20

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

Numbers from 11 to 99.

 

11: Jyuu-ichi

Since 11 = 10 + 1, you can simply read the numbers in the equation without “+”.

10(Jyuu) and 1(Ichi), meaning Jyuu-ichi.

 

In the same way, 12 is Jyuu-ni, 13 is Jyuu-san, and 14 is Jyuu-yon

 

Then, how about 21?

Since 21 = 2 x 10 + 1, you can also simply read the numbers in the equation without “x” and “+”.

2(Ni), 10(jyuu) and 1(Ichi), meanin Ni-jyuu-ichi.

 

In the same way you can read until 99.

 

For example, 44 = 4 x 10 + 4 (Yon-jyuu-yon) and 87 =8 x 10 + 7 (Hachi-jyuu-nana)

 

Did you get it?
