Lesson 69: Numbers from 11 to 99
Numbers above 10 are normally written in Western Arabic numerals for conciseness. However, in this course we will use the traditional way of writing numbers with kanji, because this will give you more practice. The way we count in Japanese resembles the way we count in English, but is more regular, as you can see when looking at the table below.
Note that forty is 四十 and not 四十, and seventy is 七十 and not 七十.
