Chinese Numbers 1-100

Posted on 22. Oct, 2012 by in Uncategorized, Vocabulary

1 - 100, by See-Ming Lee via flickrAfter much demand, I’ve finally put together a table with the Chinese numbers from 1-100. I’m sure you’ll notice a trend in how you form numbers from 11-99. See if you can figure it out on your own. I even went ahead and threw in the number zero for no extra charge!

When learning how to count in Chinese, it’s also useful to learn the hand signals for the numbers 1-10. Obviously, 1-5 are pretty much the same as anywhere, but China has a unique way of counting from 6-10:

Use one hand to count to 10 in China.


Why stop at 100, though? We’ve got plenty of resources to help you learn Chinese here.From audio courses you can take on the go, to vocabulary building flashcard software, to a full-throttle online program (see my review here), we’ve got you covered when it comes to studying Chinese.

    It’s such a big help. Though, I’m half Chinese but I don’t know how to neither write, speak, understand Chinese. Thank you very much. I’m heading for the letters.

    Hello! I am still writing the numbers. But this will help me too get a good grade in Chinese class. Even if I have and A+ in the class already, I still want a good grade. Thank-You so much. I will definitely suggest this website to anyone who wants to learn the Chinese numbers 1-100 and maybe even higher! And I will definitely show to my class on Monday, when I have Chinese during Period A2!
