Lesson Transcript

Taiwanese Mandarin Survival Phrases Lesson 11: Counting One to Ten
In this lesson, we will learn numbers. We are going to count from 0 to 10.
Let’s count each number by tone:
“Zero” is “零(líng)” This is in second tone. One more time, 零(líng).
"One" is 一(yī). This is in first tone. One more time, 一(yī).
"Two" is 二(èr). This is in fourth tone. 二(èr).
"Three" is 三(sān). This is in first tone. 三(sān).
"Four" is 四(sì). This is in fourth tone. 四(sì).
"Five" is 五(wǔ). This is in third tone. 五(wǔ).
"Six" is 六(liù). This is in fourth tone. 六(liù).
"Seven" is 七(qī). This is in first tone. 七(qī).
"Eight" is 八(bā). This is in first tone. 八(bā).
"Nine" is 九(jiǔ). This is in third tone. 九(jiǔ).
Last is "Ten", which is 十(shí). This is in second tone. 十(shí).
The number two is special in Chinese. If you are counting from one to ten, you can use 二(èr) like we covered earlier. However, if you are stating the number of things, for example, “There are two people,” or “There are two books,” you use a different form of two, which is 兩(liǎng).
