Part I
0 = Zero/ Ree
1 = Ichi
2 = Ni
3 = San
4 = Yon / Shi / Yo
5 = Go
6 = Roku
7 = Nana / Shichi
8 = Hachi
9 = Kyuu / Ku
10 = Juu
11 = Juuichi
12 = Juuni
2.13 = Juusan
14 = Juuyon
15 = Juugo
16 = Juuroku
17 = Juunana/ Juushichi
18 = Juuhachi
19 = Juukyuu / Juuku
20 = Nijuu
30 = Sanjuu
40 = yonjuu
50 = Gojuu
60 = Rokujuu
70 = Nanajuu
80 = Hachijuu
90 = Kyuu Juu
100 = Hyaku

Numbers is really simple...
Example1. 48... Yon + Juu + Hachi = 48 YonJuuHachi
Example 2. 94... Kyuu + Juu + Yon = 94 KyuuJuuYon
Example 3. 22... Ni + Juu + Ni= 22 NiJuuNi
Example 4. 186... Hyaku + Hachi + Juu + Roku = 186 Wakarimashita ka?

Practice
Part 1
A. 5
B. 9
C. 7
D. 1
E. 10
F.8
G. 2
H.6
I. 4
J. 3

Part 2
A. 45
B. 83
C. 19
D. 76
E. 52
F. 100
G. 38
H. 61
I. 24
J. 97

Part II

Let's say you wanted to read an addition or subtraction.

Tasu = + Sign
Hiku = - Sign
= Sign = Wa

Example 1

5 + 5 = 10
+ =
Go Tasu Go Wa Jyuu Desu.

Example 2

41 + 54 = 95
+ =
Yon Juu Ichi Tasu Go Jyuu Yon Wa Kyuu Juu Go Desu

Example 3

20 - 20 = 0
- =
Ni Juu Hiku Ni Juu Wa Zero/Ree Desu. Easy right?

Practice

A) 5+3
B) 9 +1
C) 3+4
D) 6-6
E) 10+9
F) 8-7
G) 40-25
_______________________________________________

Part III

Time

1 O'Clock - Ichiji
2 O'Clock - Niji
3 O'Clock - Sanji
4 O'Clock - Yoji
5 O'Clock - Goji
6 O'Clock -Rokuji
7 O'Clock - Shichiji
8 O'Clock - Hachiji
9 O'Clock - Kuji
10 O'Clock - Juuji
11 O'Clock - Juuichiji
12 O'Clock - Juuniji

Saying it's half past 1/2/3 + is easy... all you need to do is add Han

For example:

6:30 Rokuji Han
7:30 ShichiJi Han
8:30 Hachi Ji Han

Wakarimashita ka?
___________________________________________

Asking the time in Japanese

Ima nanji desu ka.

Ima - now
nan - what
ji - time or o'clock
ka - used to ask a question
desu - it is

Example :

Shunji-San - Ima nanji desu ka?
Yamapi-San - Ichiji han desu.

Let's say you wanted to know the time of a place. All you need to add is the following :

Place wa ima nanji desu ka.


If you want to be more detailed in the time of day you could use the following

Asa - Morning
Hiru - Daytime
Yoru - Night
Yuugata - Evening... this would be around 4:30 - 6:30 Pm
A.M - Gozen
P.M - Gogo

Example

Shunji-San - Tokyo wa ima nanji desu ka. What time is it in Tokyo?
Yamapi-San - Asa Niji desu. or Hiru Niji desu or Gozen Niji desu or gogo niji desu?

Pretty simple right? ^.^

Practice

a) 2 o'clock
b) 5 o'clock
c) 6 PM
d)7:30 PM
e) 11 Am
f) 12:30 PM

Wasn't that easy?

_____________________________________________________

Note: Their are a few exceptions in minutes, which you will notice occurs in numbers 1, 3, 4, 6, 8,10.

Moving on to minutes....

1- Ippun
2- Nifun
3- sanpun
4- yonpun
5- gofun
6- roppun
7- nanafun
8- happun/ hachifun
9- kyuufun
10-juppun
11- juunippun
12- juunifun
13-juusanpun
14-juuyonpun
15-juugofun
16-juuroppun
17-juunanafun
18-juuhappun
19-juukyuufun
20-nijuuppun
30-sanjuuppun

Combining the lesson above ( O'Clock)

E1.Tokyo wa Ima nanji desu ka.
E2. Australia wa Ima nanji desu ka.
E3. France wa Ima nanji desu ka.

Example1: 7:35 Am
Gozen Shichiji Sanjuugofun desu.
Example2: 8:24 Pm
Gogo HachiJi NiJuuYonPun desu.
Example3: 4:31 Pm
Gogo Yoji Sanjuuippun desu.

____________________________________________________
Finally for all the guys here's the number one pick up line!

What is your telephone number?

Denwa - Telephone
Bangoo - Number
Nan - What
Ka - Used for questions

Denwa Bangoo wa nan desu ka.

Let's say his/her phone number is
456-8475 - Yon Go Roku No Hachi Yon Nana Go

The Dash between the 6 and 8 is called "No".

Shunji-San - Maki-San denwa bangoo wa nan desu ka
Maki san - watashi wa denwa bangoo wa hachi hachi hachi no ichi ni san yon desu. or 888-1234 in english

If you want to make it shorter if someone asks your number you can reply like this by deleting the watashi wa denwa bangoo wa

Shunji-San - Maki-San denwa bangoo wa nan desu ka
Maki san - hachi hachi no ichi ni san yon or 888-1234 desu.

Since you learned how to count in Japanese this is really simple right?
