Danish Numbers Explanation: Okay, so before we jump into practicing all the Danish numbers, I just want to try and give you an explanation on why the numbers are as they are. For most people, it's pretty easy to learn the numbers up to ten or 20. And after that it gets a bit complicated. So let me try and give you an explanation on this. So the numbers from 2,039.9 are formed by combining a tens digit and the word to, which means 20. The tens digit is usually the word for the number followed by 0, which means and the word for to vote. The origin of this way of constructing numbers identities likely rooted in the fact that the number system in ancient times was based on the number 20, known as the decimal system. This system is still used in some languages, including Danish and German. So to understand, we need to look at the old word center, which means times multiply. We also need to understand that the rule of the numbers work on 20th rather than tenths. So 60 is coming from Trey center tube. Tube, which is shorten too. S AT follows a similar pattern as Oedipus's, of course four times 24 senior tuber fears Institute, which is shortened to thes. So hope you're still with me. Okay, Then it becomes even more complicated. The haves equals to two-and-a-half healthier, which is half-full, equals to three-and-a-half. Fem, which is half phi equals to 4.5. This means that you take the 20s and then half of 20 e.g. Stress, which is 50, is equal to two times 20 plus ten, which is the half. Which is then shorten to help address. The long version would be held cyclists into healthy S. This assembly is equal to three times 20 plus ten, which is then 70. 90 or held firms is four times 20 plus ten, which is then shown to help firms. 15. Numbers- 0-10: Okay, so in this part of the course, you will learn the numbers, or as we say in Danish, tell. You will learn how to count to 100. Let's start with the numbers zero to ten.
