Korean has two sets of numbers: those the come orignally from Korean (the

"native" or "pure" Korean set) and those that came into Korean via Chinese (the "Sino-Korean" set). The numbers given below are the NATIVE KOREAN numbers. They are used to count objects (with classifiers), to count years in one's age, and to count the hours (when telling time).

하나 둘 셋 넷 다섯 여섯 일곱 여덟 아홉 열

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

* The first four numbers have special "combining forms" that are used when a classifer immediately follows:

한 두 세 네

1 2 3 4

Multiples of ten appear below.

열 스물 서른 마흔 쉰 예순 일흔 여든 아흔 백

10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100

To form any number between 11 and 99, simply use the order "TENS + UNITS":

스물 다섯 25

일흔 여섯 76

서른 셋 33 etc.

For numbers 100 and beyond, the SINO-KOREAN Numbers

are used.

You may find it useful to practice the following:

몇 살이에요？ "How old are you?"

저는 서른 세 살이에요． "I'm 33 years old."

저는 _________ 살이에요． "I'm __ years old."

몇 개 있어요？ "How many are there?"

다섯 개 있어요． "There are 5 (of them)."
