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!

Konnichiwa, O genki desu ka?

My name is Lucas Broadway, I am 22 years old and I reside in Kentucky in the United States. I have worked in a Japanese based automotive industry for over 4 years and it has always been a dream of mine to learn another language, especially Japanese.

I found it rather intimidating to learn a new language after I had researched other teaching courses – some taught you how to speak but not to read or write, while others rushed through the beginning stages of the teachings and moved straight to the more advanced and intermediate courses. My hope was almost gone until I came across the Rocket Japanese website.

What a relief it was to hear friendly voices teaching a wonderful language in such an easy to follow, easy to learn format. Words cannot explain how simple it is to learn Japanese with this program. If you are struggling to find something that can easily teach and gingerly walk you through a new language then Rocket Japanese needs to be your one stop shop. You will never again have to worry about being late for another lesson or forgetting what you’ve already learned. This program is like sitting down with two close friends and being taught easily and successfully what the Japanese language is all about.

No more useless memorizations or boring drills, just the facts of what you need to know in an understandable format.

If you haven’t yet purchased this program then you are robbing from yourself by not taking advantage of what this great team has to offer.

Thank you Rocket Japanese and your wonderful team for all you have done to help me learn the beautiful Japanese language. Thank you for allowing me to share my testimonial with you.
Have a great day. God bless

Overall, a great product. I was able to learn Japanese petty fast with Rocket Japanese. Great interactive audio lessons. They are very helpful when trying to memorize the lesson and understand the meanings. Culture lessons have great content. However, I am a slow reader, I wish the culture lessons had interactive audio lesson along with them as well.

Hi, this is Molly. I just got the Rocket Japanese system and already I have learned a lot more than I would have expected in the first couple of days.

Not only are the lessons easy to understand, but affordable. They are set up in a way that is fun and easy to learn. The games are also very helpful in learning certain words and characters.

I don’t have a job currently, and ordering this was a breeze, and it was within my budget. At about one fourth of the cost of the **competitor** it seems to work from what I can guess, just as well, if not better.

I have wanted to learn Japanese for a while now but never thought I would find something so amazing and rewarding to help get me through it quickly. I don’t understand why someone would not want to use this system to learn such a beautiful language. Using Rocket Japanese people will find that it’s not hard to learn a new language, even one that’s quite different from all other languages, as Japanese is.

Whether you need to learn it for travel, or you just want to learn it for fun I think there is no better choice than the Rocket Japanese system. Thank you.
