This video is very very difficult.

This is ‘advanced numbers’. Ok…

It’s very difficult to understand.

It’s very difficult to express these numbers.

We’re going to talk about very big numbers and how to say them.

Alright…

Uhhh, try not to be scared.

I will try to teach you as simple as possible.

Again, this video is meant to help you.

You have to do a lot of self-study to truly master these numbers.

Ok, let’s start with the ‘hundreds’ here.

Now we already know this number.

You should be able to say this number by now.

“One hundred.”

But let’s look at the next…

Ok…

Now this is “one hundred and one.”

Now listen to what I said.

“One hundred and one.”

Do you hear the ‘and’?

Ok…

Now, that’s actually British style.

When British people say numbers, they use an ‘and’.

So, “One hundred and one.”

But American style is different.

They don’t say “and”.

Ok, so, “One hundred and one.”

American syle is “One hundred one.”

No ‘and’. Ok…

So British style again: “One hundred and one.”

American syle: “One hundred one.”

Now, which style should you use?

Doesn’t matter.

Both are ok.

Everyone will understand you if you use British style or American style.

British style doesn’t sound strange.

American style doesn’t sound strange.

I come from Canada, so sometimes I use British style, sometimes I use American style.

So, keep that in mind.

Probably when you’re listening to me, sometimes I use the ‘and’, sometimes I don’t.

Ok…

So, “One hundred and one” or “one hundred one.”

Let’s look at the next number. Ok…

“One hundred fifty” or “one hundred and fifty.” Ok…

So, we know this is fifty…”one hundred fifty.”

Let’s look at the next number.

That’s one.

That’s fifty-one.

“One hundred fifty-one” or “one hundred and fifty-one.”

Alright…

Let’s look at the next number.

We know this is two.

We know this is ninety-two.

This is “seven hundred ninety-two” or “seven hundred and ninety-two.”

Alright…

And the last number here.

Well, we know that’s nine.

That’s ninety-nine.

That’s “nine hundred ninety-nine” or “nine hundred and ninety-nine.”

Alright…

So these are the ‘hundreds’.

Let’s move to bigger numbers.

The ‘thousands’.

3:10 [Part 2]

Are you read for some bigger number?

I’m sorry, but it’s going to start to get real difficult.

Ok…

So, let’s take a look here.

Listen carefully.

Our next number…we know this is ‘a’thousand’.

So this is “one thousand one.”

Ok, “one thousand one.”

If you want to use British styel, “one thousand and one.”

Ok, again, doesn’t matter.

So,”one thousand one.”

Let’s move up.

So we know this is ‘one hundred’.

And we know this is “one thousand one hundred.”

“One thousand one hundred.”

Ok…

Now, let’s move to the the third number here.

A little more confusing.

We got lost of numbers.

Ok, don’t be so scared.

We know that’s ‘four’.

We know that’s ‘twenty-four’.

We know that’s ‘three hundred and twenty-four’.

And then we got the ‘thousands’.

So, “seven thousand three hundred twenty-four.”

“Seven thousand three hundred twenty-four.”

Let’s move on to the next number.

‘Five’, ‘fifty-five’, ‘five hundred fifty-five’, “ten thousand five hundred fifty-five.”

Ok…

Let’s move on.

‘Four’, ‘twenty-four’, ‘three hundred and twenty-four’, “seventeen thousand three hundred and twenty-four.”

Let’s move on.

Bigger number here.

‘Six’, ‘sixty-six’, ‘six hundred and sixty-six’, “one hundred and fifty-two thousand six hundred and sixty-six.”

Ok, let’s review these numbers again.

“One thousand one.”

“One thousand one hundred.”

“Seven thousand three hundred twenty-four.”

“Ten thousand five hundred fifty-five.”

“Seventeen thousand three hundred and twenty-four.”

“One hundred and fifty-two thousand six hundred and sixty-six.”

Ok…

You ready for some more.

Let’s go to some even bigger numbers.

5:37 [Part 3]

You’re still watching this video?

Ahhh, that’s too bad because I have something very scary to show you.

Chuuuuuu….

Alright, so here are some very very big numbers.

And let’s try to say them.

Uhhh, the first one.

Alright, we have three and three.

So, we know this is ‘million’.

So this is going to be “six million eight.”

Ok, very simple.

That’s an eight.

“Six million eight.”

Let’s move on to the next one.

Alright, so if we take….we also know this is ‘million’.

But if we just start here.

How much is that?

Well, that’s ‘five hundred thousand’.

So how much is that?

Well that’s “five million five hundred thousand”.

Alright…

Let’s get to a… very big and confusing number.

Even confusing to me.

But let’s try it together.

Ahhh, again we have three and three.

We know this is ‘million’.

We know this is ‘thirteen million’.

Ahhh, but, we have to say all of these numbers.

Ok, so let’s start slow.

That’s ‘two’, ‘thirty-two’, ‘four hundred thirty-two’.

Well that’s a zero, but that’s…oh, we’re going into a ..oh…it’s getting very confusing now.

This would be ‘twenty thousand four hundred thirty-two’.

‘Six hundred and twenty thousand four hundred and thirty-two’.

“Thirteen million six hundred and twenty thousand four hundred and thirty-two.”

“Thirteen million six hundred and twenty thousand four hundred and thirty-two.”

Whew, big number.

Let’s move on.

I’m scared myself.

Alright, again, we have three and three.

I know this is ‘million’.

I know this is a ‘twenty-four million’.

What are all these numbers?

‘Two’.

‘Thirty-two’.

‘Four hundred and thirty-two’.

‘Eight thousand four hundred and thirty-two’.

‘Forty-eight thousand four hundred and thirty-two’.

‘Five hundred and forty-eight thousand four hundred and thirty-two’.

And our final number, “twenty-four million five hundred and forty-eight thousand four hundred and thirty-two.”

“Twenty-four million five hundred and forty-eight thousand four hundred and thirty-two.”

The last one here.

A really really big number.

Ok…

So, again, ‘seven’.

‘Forty-seven’.

‘Nine hundred and forty-seven’.

‘Two thousand nine hundred forty-seven’.

‘Four hundred and thirty-two thousand nine hundred and forty-seven’.

And… what’s this?

Again, this is three, three.

This is a ‘million’.

So this is, “One hundred and twenty-five million four hundred and thirty-two thousand nine hundred and forty-seven.”

“One hundred and twenty-five million four hundred and thirty-two thousand nine hundred and forty-seven.”

Ok, do you understand all these numbers?

If you do, that’s great.

Ahhh, but before we do a test, we’re going to do a little extra practice.

9:23 [Part 4]

Ok, so let’s just review a little bit.

I have five numbers here, just for a quick review….before the test.

Ok…

So, the first one.

How much is this?

Well, ‘four’, ‘forty-four’, “four hundred forty-four.”

And again, we can use the ‘and’.

“Four hundred ‘and’ forty-four.”

That’s possible.

Uhhh, the next number.

Ok, we know three zeros…or three numbers here.

This is ‘thousand’.

So, “eight thousand nine hundred forty-two.”

The next number.

Ok.. lots of numbers…ahhh….

We know it’s ‘thousand’.

“Fifty-five thousand five hundred forty-three.”

Bigger number.

Lots of sevens.

But don’t be scared of all these sevens.

So, again it’s just ‘thousand’.

So, “two hundred and seventy-seven thousand seven hundred seventy-seven.”

“Two hundred and seventy-seven thousand seven hundred seventy-seven.”

Alright, and let’s go to the ‘millions’.

Three, three. I know this is a ‘million’.

Cause it has two commas.

So, “three million three hundred and twenty thousand three hundred and twenty-one.

Alright…

So, if you can understand how to say these five, you’re ready for the test.

So, we’re going to start the test.

You should prepare some paper and a pen.

Ahhh, I’m going to say the numbers and you should write down the numbers.

Alright…

So let’s start the test.

Good luck.

11:03 [Part 5 – Test]

Number one.

“Six hundred sixty-six.”

“Six hundred sixty-six.”

Alright, so you should write this.

“Six hundred sixty-six.”

Number two.

“Three thousand two hundred twelve.”

“Three thousand two hundred twelve.”

Ok, so you should write this.

The next number.

Number three.

“Six thousand four hundred thirty-two.”

“Six thousand four hundred thirty-two.”

Alright, so you should write this.

Number four.

Getting bigger.

“Twelve thousand eight hundred fourteen.”

“Twelve thousand eight hundred fourteen.”

Alright, so it looks like this.

Number five.

“Twenty-two thousand four hundred thirty-two.”

“Twenty-two thousand four hundred thirty-two.”

Ok, looks like this.

“Fifty-four million five hundred and forty-three thousand nine hundred eighty-seven.”

Ok, so that looks like this.

Number ten.

The last one.

Ok, the last one’s very difficult.

Sorry.

Ok…

Listen carefully.

“Eleven million one hundred eleven thousand one hundred eleven.”

“Eleven million one hundred eleven thousand one hundred eleven.”

Ok, so that looks like this.

14:47 [Part 6]

Uhhh, this is a very difficult video.

Uhhh.

Well, that’s English numbers.

Those are the advanced numbers.

Uhhh, I hope you did well on the test.

I know it was a very difficult test and it takes a long long to master the numbers you saw today.

Alright…

Takes a lot of self-study.

A lot of practice.

But never give up…ahhh, you can do it.

I believe in you.

Well, that’s it for this video.
