Lesson Transcript

Chihiro: Hey everybody, I'm Chihiro and you're listening to Basic Bootcamp Lesson 4 - Counting 1 to 10 and 10 to 100
Ryan: Hi everybody, I'm Ryan and welcome to our 4th lesson in our 5 part series.
Chihiro: This lesson should be easy for those of you who know the numbers already, however, we hope that we can add a little more information to your already exisiting knowledge.
Ryan: Yes, so here we go with lesson 4.
Chihiro: In this lesson you'll will learn how to count from 1~10, and then 10~100
Ryan: This is a simple dialogue of two people counting things off
Chihiro: The conversation is between
Ryan: The speakers will be counting in both cardinal and ordinal numbers

Lesson conversation

A: One, two, three, four, five pencils; two, four, six, eight, ten erasers; and two, four, six, eight, ten, twelve, fourteen, sixteen rulers.
B: The first, second, and third prize winners will be announced shortly.
A: Numbers fifty-two, twenty-three, eighty-seven, and seventy-nine are the winning numbers!
English Host: Letโ€™s hear the conversation one time slowly.
A: One, two, three, four, five pencils; two, four, six, eight, ten erasers; and two, four, six, eight, ten, twelve, fourteen, sixteen rulers.
B: The first, second, and third prize winners will be announced shortly.
A: Numbers fifty-two, twenty-three, eighty-seven, and seventy-nine are the winning numbers!
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Chihiro: Okay, now like in the mini dialogue we just heard, there are different ways of counting. You can count in even numbers, which would be 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 which is a common way to do. Or you can count in odd numbers, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11
Ryan: Right, either way, those numbers that you've probably heard before are called cardinal numbers, and just like you heard, they're used to count things.
Chihiro: The other type of numbering you heard in the dialogue would be ordinal numbers. This type of numbering tells you the order of things. That's why you hear it when giving the date in English.
Ryan: Make sure to write and pronounce the "-st," "-nd," "-rd," and "-th" at the end of the numbers for ordinal numbers as in, first, second, third, fourth, fifth
Chihiro: ...and so forth

KEY VOCABULARY AND PHRASES
Chihiro: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Ryan: The first word/phrase weโ€™ll look at is....
Chihiro: Now, as we promised, we have a little something for those who already know hot to count up to 100.
Ryan: Since we want everyone to get something out of the lessons.
Chihiro: We have a little something on the meaning of certain numbers.
Ryan: Many cultures around the world have numbers tied to certain meanings or beliefs. Similarly, in North America, there are beliefs and superstitions as well.
Chihiro: For example people consider the number seven to be a lucky number. There are many different reasons for this, but one reason may stem from religious origins - God created the earth in seven days. In gambling, people also think the number seven is a very lucky number on slot machines and a desired number on the dice.
Ryan: Or, some people consider the number thirteen to be an unlucky number. Some buildings may not even have a thirteenth floor. People believe Friday the thirteenth is an unlucky day as well. The origin of this superstition is unknown, but Judas is the thirteenth person at the table in the famous painting "The Last Supper," and he is the man who betrayed Jesus.
Chihiro: There are more numbers that people view as lucky or unlucky, such as 666 being the devil's number, and eleven being another lucky number. Of course, whether or not people choose to believe these superstitions is entirely up to them!
Ryan: What are some numbers with meaning in your country?
Chihiro: Let us know by leaving us a comment!

Lesson focus

Chihiro: Let's take a look a closer look at the numbers in this lesson.
Ryan: Now, if you don't know already, the first 20 numbers may be the hardest to learn, because it's just memorization. But once you get the hang of it, the higher numbers should be easy.
Chihiro: Right, so let's get it right this time so things will be easier later.
Ryan: Make sure to use the lesson notes, it will definitely help.
Chihiro: Here we go. Ryan, count from 1~20 slowly please.
Ryan: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20
Chihiro: Simple as that.
Ryan: Okay, Chihiro, can you give is 1~20 in the ordinal numbers?
Chihiro: Sure, it goes, 0, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th. 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th
Ryan: Okay, and the higher numbers sound a little like the combination of the two numbers, as in 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30
Chihiro: See how the numbers are just combined? All you hvae to do is remember how to say the ten's column.
Ryan: Which goes, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100.
Chihiro: And that's it. So, 30+1=31, 50+2=52, 80+3=83,
Ryan: And with the ordinal numbers, just add the ending of the number in the one's column,
Chihiro: So a number like 31 would be 31st, 57 would be 52nd, and 83 would be 83rd.
Ryan: Right. And there you have it!
Chihiro: The cardinal and ordinal numbers up to 100! Okay, that just about does it for today. [marketing piece]
Ryan: See you all soon.
Chihiro: Bye for now!

I heard that people in the US are very superstitious about 13, so that there are no seats with the number 13 on planes or a 13th row in the theatre.

To what extent is that true/false?
