Do you know the basic numbers already?

Many people do, but when it comes to larger numbers--like those over 20--they have a more difficult time. This lesson will introduce you to large numbers, larger numbers, and VERY large numbers! (Can you say 1,01,101 in Hindi?) At the same time, you'll even learn how to say how old you are, how much something costs, and how to talk about the year you were born in Hindi.

Let’s get started!
