Here you'll learn to say the numbers from 11 to 999 in Mandarin Chinese. You have learned to say numbers 1 to 10 already and these are the basic building clocks to form all higher numbers.

When paying the bill in the restaurant, Leo realised that he needed to master numbers higher than ten! Dani teaches him to count as far as 999 on their walk back to the office. Here Leo sees the benefits of the decimal structure of Chinese numbers, as very little new vocabulary is needed. Dani explains the few simple rules that use numbers one to ten to say the higher numbers in Mandarin Chinese.

With the ability to communicate numbers up to 999, you will be equipped for any situation you will encounter as a visitor or traveler in China. Only if you plan to stay longer or work in China, will you need to use even larger numbers. You can always fall back on using a calculator if you forget how to say a number in Chinese. With some practice, the numbers will start to come more naturally to you.
