We previously looked at the Sino-Korean numbers so today we'll be looking at the native Korean numbers. These are: 1 하나 [ha-na] 2 둘 [dul] 3 셋 [set] 4 넷 [net] 5 다섯 [da-seot] 6 여섯 [yeo-seot] 7 일곱 [il-gop] 8 여덟 [yeo-deol] 9 아홉 [a-hop] 10 열 [yeol] Usages: 1. TIME You use native Korean numbers to give the hour and Sino-Korean numbers to specify the minute. For example: 6:45pm 여셧시 사십오분 2. AGE You should give your age using native Korean numbers. 17살 = 열일곱살 *NOTE From numbers 1 through 99, the usage of native Korean numbers is generally very distinctively different from the usage of sino-Korean numbers, but for bigger units like 100, 1,000, 10,000 and etc., the words for these bigger numbers in the native Korean numbers are no longer used and only sino-Korean numbers are used.
good post so many people learning korean don't know the difference between the number systems and its really important!
there are two different number systems?!
Actually I have two questions: is the "t" at the end of da-seot pronounced or not? Also, I didn't know there was two number systems. What is the difference between them?
I'm just beginning to learn all of this but can I make a suggesting? can you maybe add audio to how say the word. cause I don't think I'm pronouncing them right just by sounding it out
