Learning to Count in Another Language

You’d be surprised at how frequently you use numbers on a daily basis; we often count without realising we’re counting. For example, when you’re at school or work, you might count down the minutes until your lunch break. When you’re travelling somewhere, you may count how many miles you have to go. When you order a coffee, you’ll need to count your money.

Just like grammar, the ability to count is essential for communicating properly in a particular language. Luckily, learning to count in a foreign language is fairly straightforward as long as you focus on some effective resources. It’s important to remember that the only thing standing in your way when you’re learning a new language is yourself. Try and make every moment an opportunity to count something (like climbing the stairs) and you’ll be a pro in no time!

When considering the most appropriate resource to help you learn how to count in another language, it’s wise to choose a strategy that best suits your learning style. For example, if you love to sing, you could find some videos on the internet that teach counting with songs. Perhaps you’re a visual learner? In which case, a clear, concise chart is a great choice. If you have a smart phone, you could consider downloading an app to make your language learning portable so that you can practise no matter where you are.

Numbers are everywhere and making sure you know the difference between six, sixty and six-hundred can help you avoid a costly mistake. The great sense of achievement which comes as your understanding of a new language increases is well worth the effort you’ll have to put in if you hope to master it!
