Counting in Japanese

This free audio lesson on counting in Japanese is essential stuff for your Japanese language survival kit! Want to go shopping? Tell someone the address where you’re staying or the number of house you’re visiting? Perhaps you want to know how old someone is, or how many children they have.


There are so many reasons to know how to count in Japanese, and the Rocket Japanese team are here to help. Starting with the basics, by the end of this lesson you’ll know how the Japanese words for the numbers 1-10. Let’s get started

How to pronounce numbers in Japanese

As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Japanese pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Japanese words and phrases, this lesson will help you.


Using the blue Rocket Record buttons you can record the way you say each number, and compare it with the way a Japanese native speaker does. That’s right, with Rocket Japanese voice mapping technology you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Japanese speaker!

Rocket Japanese is an excellent, affordable way to learn Japanese. Sayaka and Kenny work together quite well, though sometimes their interactions seem a bit fake. This program is great for those who know next-to-nothing about the language they want to learn, like me.

Today was my first day using Rocket Languages (Japanese Premium) and I can honestly say that in the first audio lesson I learned 90% of the material that was covered in the first hour. I can not say that for my three years spent in French class in high school. This first hour was incredible and really motivates me to want to come back tomorrow and use it again. Especially the way you can grade yourself so you know what to work on for later. Rocket Languages is a sound investment for anyone who wishes to learn another language.

Hi, Learning from Rocket Japanese is easy and fast and one gets to know the real feel also because of the conversations. However, as you can understand that any study without aim is worthless. I would suggest that you add more study material which is matchable to the quality of questions to the JLPT levels. This will convince more and more users to join your course and also give a benchmark for them to rate them against a real life test or hurdle.

This is a great program that uses a mix of audio, text, and quizzes to help you learn a language. I'm trying to learn Japanese and I was very relieved when I saw the program has all the writing methods of Japan (Kanji, Katakana, Hiragana, and Romaji). I am also glad that they incorporated a way for me to record myself speaking the language. This way I can compare myself to that of the native speaker. I am currently using the Rocket Languages iOS app for my iPhone and it works perfectly (except for some audio files that won't play 100% of the time).

I would recommend this to my friends and family. Actually, I've already recommend this program to my husband, who wants to learn Spanish.

I encourage anyone, who is motived to learn a new language, to use Rocket Languages.
