Hello everybody!! 大家好 (Dàjiā hǎo)

Welcome back to our Chinese Class by Affy. Today we are going to learn about Chinese characters numbers 1-10 as well as one to ten in English in words.

Let’s get started!  我们开始吧 (wǒmen kāishǐ ba)


Below is number flashcard that I have made for Gemmy and Affy. There are 3 languages English Chinese and Thai. You can simply click on picture to download it as a PDF file. It is totally free to share with anyone who think it might be useful for their kids or class.

1-10 flash

Below is a video that Gemmy and Affy learned how to count 1-20 in Mandarin Chinese and how to write number in Chinese characters too.
1 One in Chinese 一
2 Two  in Chinese 二
3 Three in Chinese 三
4 Four in Chinese 四
5 Five in Chinese 五
6 Six in Chinese 六
7 Seven in Chinese 七
8 Eight in Chinese 八
9 Nine in Chinese 九
10 Ten in Chinese 十
11 Eleven in Chinese 十一
12 Twelve in Chinese 十二
13 Thirteen in Chinese 十三
14 Fourteen in Chinese 十四
15 Fifteen 四 in Chinese 十五
16 Sixteen in Chinese 十六
17 Seventeen in Chinese 十七
18 Eighteen in Chinese 十八
19 Nineteen in Chinese 十九
20 Twenty in Chinese 二十

And the last video is about how to count and say 1-80 in Chinese and English. There is a trick to learn Chinese number as we will tell you now.

You can notice that eleven (11) in Chinese is “ten one”. Twelve (12) is “ten two”, and so on. You see! it is very easy for other Chinese numbers, if you merely know Chinese number 1-10.

Twenty is “Two ten”, twenty-one is “two ten one” (2*10 + 1), and so on up to 99. That’s easy and fun!!

One-hundred is “one hundred”. One-hundred and one is “one hundred zero one”. One hundred and eleven(111) is “one hundred one ten one”.

Remark that for eleven(11) alone, you only need “ten one” and not “one ten one“, but when used in a larger number (such as 111), you must add the extra “one”. So 111 in Chinese will be one+hundred+one+ten+one.

One thousand and above is done in a similar way, where you say how many thousands you have, then how many hundreds, tens, and ones. For example 2135 in Chinese will be “two+thousand+one+hundred+three+ten+five.

An exception to this is for zeroes. When a zero occurs in the number (except at the end), you need to say “zero”, but only once for two or more consecutive zeroes. So one-thousand and one (101) would be “one thousand zero one”, where zero stands in for the hundreds and tens places. That’s all for Chinese number. From now on, I believe you can say any number in Mandarin Chinese. Just keep practicing many different numbers and that’s it.
