Meeting at Fazer Cafe

Our 5th meeting was at Fazer Cafe in Tampere. We decided to focus on counting. We started with the Korean numbers and I was really surprised because it’s quite easy.
0 = 영 (young)
1 = 일 (ill)
2 = 이 (i)
3 = 삼  (sam)
4 = 사 (sa)
5 = 오 (o)
6 = 육 (yuk)
7 = 칠 (chil)
8 = 팔 (pal)
9 = 구 (gu)
10 = 십 (sip)
11 = 십일 (shipil)
12 = 십이 (shipi)
100 = 백 (baek)
1000 = 천 (cheon)
10000 = 만 (man)

In Koran you just have to combine these numbers, for example 357 = 삼백오십칠 (sambaekosipchil).
After Korean we started to teach Mi Hyeon counting in German and I realized that it’s not easy because there are a lot of irregularities. But Mi Hyeon did a great job and memorized it quickly.
