WORD Wednesday--Counting in Korean

Still a bit tongue tied on the numbers, but this lesson is from Talk To Me In Korean (the only site that has been able to get any of this language through my rock hard head) is helping me do better.

Koreans actually have two sets of number systems, but I'm gonna stick to this one for now. I also found it much easier to count along with the video by reading the lesson notes, which are below. I'm finally to the point that I don't sound completely spastic.

Video Lesson - Teach Me Korean Numbers (Part 1)
In Korean, there are two different number systems, one is native Korean numbers and the other is sino-Korean numbers, which are based on the Chinese language but pronounced differently. For now, these are native Korean numbers from 1 up to 10.

하나 [ha-na] = one 
[dul] = two
[set] = three
[net] = four
다섯 [da-seot] = five
여섯 [yeo-seot] = six
일곱 [il-gop] = seven
여덟 [yeo-deol] = eight
아홉 [a-hop] = nine 
[yeol] = ten
