Counting in Japanese

Whenever we count during training, it's done in Japanese.  Do your best to use your voice properly (loud and clear) so everyone who needs to hear you can.  Be careful not to let your counting become screaming as that would be considered disrespectful.  Counting in Japanese is easy, once you understand the method.  You can count from 1 to 99 simply by learning 1 through 10 and how to combine them.

NOTE: For the pronunciations, each syllable (sound-group) should take the same length of time to say.  For example, the number 21 Ni ju ichi  is pronounced “nee-djyuu-ee-tchee “.  The “nee” in ni should take just as long as the “djyuu” in jyu.The hyphen symbol (“-“) divides each syllable.  Also, the syllable in bold type-face should be pronounced with slightly more emphasis.

1 through 10:
