Numbers in Korean

There are two sets of numbers in Korean: the native Korean system and the Sino-Korean system. The native numbers are used for numbers of items (1-99) and age, while the Sino-Korean system is based on Chinese numbers and are used for dates, money, addresses, phone numbers, and numbers above 100.

Hindu-Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, etc) are used for most situations, but the Hanja numerals are sometimes used for prices.

If any of the numbers are links, you can hear a recording by clicking on them. If you can provide recordings, please contact me.
