Introduction: How to Count to Ten in 3 Different Languages.

I will show you how to count to ten in Polish, French, and Spanish. I added awesome pictures of the country's flag.

P.S. Please rate and vote for the book contest. Thanks a million!

Step 1: Polish

1 = Jeden (Yed-en)
2 = Dwa (dva)
3 = Trzy
4 = Cztery (Shtuh-dee) chtu-dy (make a slight r sound after uh ))
5 = piec (pi-airsh ( the sh sounds like measure))
6 = szesc (Shysht)
7 = Siedem (sheh-dem)
8 = Osiem (osh-em)
9 = dziewiec (jyev-enge (hint: sounds kind of like English seven))
10 = dziesiec (Jish-inj)

The youtube account is not me, so I give all the credit to him. I even learned the numbers from him. I have only seen about 5/44 of his Polish lesson videos.

Step 2: French

1= Un (Spelled the way it sounds)
2= Deux (Doo)
3= trois (Twa)
4= quatre(Quatch-ra)
5= cinq (Senk)
6= six (Seese)
7= sept (Set)
8= huit (Weet)
9= Neuf (Noof)
10= dix (Deese)

Step 3: Spanish

1= uno (Ooh-no)
2= Dos (Dohss)
3= Tres(Tress)Roll your r)
4= Cuatro( Quatch-ro) Roll your "T" and "R"))
5= Cinco(Sink-Oh)
6= Seis(See-Ess)
7= Siete(See-ent-ay)
8= Ocho(Och-oh)
9= nueve(Noo-ev-ay)
10= diez (Dee-ess)

Depending on how many people like this, I might make more.

for 5 it is easier to think of sank, 8 as wheat, and 9 as nerf

Q: There are two cats, trying to cross a river. 123-cat, and unduertwoi-cat. They both swim, but only 123-cat emerges. What happened?

A: Undeurtwoi-cat sank. (Say it aloud and it makes more sense)

How do u pronounce 4 in French

author
AuroraJ2 made it!(author)2017-03-26

You'd pronounce it 'caht' like cat, but kinda like 'cot'.. in the middle.

It would be a lot more easy to understand the pronunciation if you used the IPA.

En realidad se pronuncia exactamente igual a como se escribe. Eso, con todos mis respetos, solo hace que se pronuncien mal las palabras en español. En español no se pronuncian las "h" a no ser que lleve una "c" delante "ch", así que no pongas las "h" de la pronunciación, ya que el español no es tan suave y fluido como el inglés.

Russian is similar to Polish:

Adeen, Dva, Tree, Chiteeree, Pyat, Sheyst, Seym, Vocem, Dyevyat, Dyevsyat.
Transliterations, obviously, because I don't feel like writing the Cyrillic.

And Japanese is fun:
Ichi, Ni, San, Shi, Go, Roku, Shichi, Hachi, Ku, Ju

pronunciation?

dchall8 made it!(author)2008-07-19

Or an alternate pronunciation for Spanish in Mexico...

1= OO no (the oo as in moon)
2= dose (like a dose of medicine)
3= tress (yes, always roll the r)
4= KWA trow
5= SEEN koh
6= sayce
7= see EH tay
8= OH cho
9= new WAY vay
10= dee ESS (or sometimes dee ACE)

If you pronounce these in Mexico like I have them written, everyone will know you are not a native speaker. Why? Because in that language your tongue goes into different places to make the same/similar sound. For example the Mexican Spanish d, n, and t sounds start with your tongue between your front teeth instead of right behind your upper front teeth as they do in English. If you pronounce them like the writer suggests, you will not even be understood as saying numbers. It's hard to explain the differences without hearing them, but these will at least get you understood.

author
Flumpkins made it!(author)2008-07-18

Holy Moly! What numbers did you forget?

author
DJ+Radio made it!(author)2008-07-18

7-0 basicly, to count 2-digits, you say the digits of the number

author
Flumpkins made it!(author)2008-07-18

Can you explain that again plz?

author
DJ+Radio made it!(author)2008-07-18

sy the number was 70. say the digit 7, then say 0 in chinese

author
Flumpkins made it!(author)2008-07-19

So... If you know 0-9 then you basicly already know how to count to 100?

author
DJ+Radio made it!(author)2008-07-19

yes
