Hi. I’m Denise. Thank you for watching my video. Today I’m going to talk about how to say numbers in English. I will talk about both the vocabulary and the pronunciation of numbers. Okay? So let’s start. I’ve written some numbers up here, so please watch and listen. This is zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one, twenty-two, twenty-three, twenty-four, twenty-five, twenty-six, twenty-seven, twenty-eight, twenty-nine, thirty, and I would continue down here, thirty-one, thirty-two, thirty-three, etc. When I did that, when I said each of these numbers, all I did was say this number which is twenty and this number one, so twenty-one. I’ve written it here, twenty-one. That’s this. Twenty-two, twenty-three. So there’s no extra word in the middle. There’s no and or an additional word. So here it would be thirty-one, thirty-two, thirty-three. As I go down, thirty-four, thirty-five, thirty-six. This is forty, so if I wanted to count down, it would be forty-one, forty-two, forty-three, etc. Okay? So let me continue reading these across. This is thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety, one hundred, one hundred ten.
Let me talk a little bit about the pronunciation. When I said this number twenty and all of these other numbers in this column, twenty-one or twenty-eight, I did not pronounce this ‘t’ and most Americans do not pronounce that. You can pronounce it, of course, if you want to. You can pronounce this as twenty, twenty-one, which is correct, but most Americans do not pronounce that. We say twenty-one, twenty-one, twenty-two. So I am mentioning it so that you will understand us when we speak. We don’t usually pronounce that ‘t.’ We never pronounce that ‘t.’ For these, forty, fifty, sixty, for the forty, fifty, for many of these we pronounce that ‘t’ almost as a ‘d,’ forty, ‘d’, forty, forty-one, forty-two, forty-three. So again, I am just mentioning this so that you understand us when we speak. Okay?
These numbers over here in the hundreds should be pronounced as one hundred one in the same way that I simply said this number twenty and this number one, twenty-two, twenty-three, we should do the same thing with the hundreds. So for this number I would say one hundred one. This would be one hundred two. So I would read these as, I should read these as one hundred, one hundred one, one hundred two, one hundred three, one hundre...
