Numbers Key Points

The method that I personally use to figure in my mind numbers in Chinese is to associate the five number-key characters to the 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8 zeros numbers, that are tens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, and hundreds of millions.

1 zero numbers

The key Chinese character for 1 zero numbers is .

The Chinese character after it indicates units, the one before it indicates tens.

Only remember that numbers from 10 to 19 don't have before , and that "zero" is never written or read when at the end of a number (as in 10, 20, 30 or 100, 2000, 30000).

Examples

fifteen

fifty-five

ninety

2 zeros numbers

Key Chinese character is .

After it we would put numbers from 1 to 99, as explained under the preceding subtitle (in this case, numbers from 10 to 19 do have before ).

The Chinese character before indicates hundreds ( must be written to indicate one hundred).

Examples

one hundred

one hundred and ten

three-hundred

three-hundred and thirty

three-hundred and thirty-three

I've not mentioned numbers from 101 to 109 because you still don't know how to say and write "zero". Tomorrow you'll study the character for "zero", even if it's not among the 1000 most used Chinese characters.

3 zeros numbers

Key Chinese character: .

The Chinese character before it indicates thousands. After it, numbers from 1 to 999 as said above.

Examples

one thousand

nine-thousand nine-hundred ninety-nine

4 zeros numbers

Chinese language has a single key character for four zeros numbers: .

The Chinese character before it indicates tens of thousands. It's followed by numbers from 1 to 9999 written as usual.

Examples

ten-thousand

twelve-thousand

forty-four thousand four-hundred forty-four

8 zeros numbers

Chinese language has also a single key character for eight zeros numbers: 亿.

The Chinese character before it indicates hundreds of millions, after it we'd write numbers from 1 to 99,999,999.

Examples

亿 one-hundred million

亿 five-hundred and fifty million
