にほんご

 漢字 – Kanji ひらがな – Hiragana Romaji (English Letters) English Meaning 一 いち ichi one 二 に ni two 三 さん san three 四 し、 よん shi (yon after 10) four 五 ご go five 六 ろく roku six 七 しち、 なな shichi (nana after 10) seven 八 はち hachi eight 九 きゅう kyuu nine 十 じゅう juu ten 百 ひゃく hyaku hundred

Numbers after 10 are a piece of cake once you know 1 through 10. 11 is simply ten with a one after it, 十一 (じゅういち, juuichi), 12 – juuni, 13 – juusan, 14 – juuyon, etc. 20 is simply 二十 (にじゅう, nijuu), 21 – nijuuichi, and so forth.

Put these numbers in front of the character for time 時 and you’ve got the time of the day.

 漢字 – Kanji ひらがな – Hiragana Romaji (English Letters) English Meaning 一時 いちじ ichiji one o’clock 二時 にじ niji two o’clock 二時半 にじはん nijihan two thirty (半 means half) 二時四十五分 にじよんじゅうごふん nijiyonjuugofun 2:45 (分 means minute) …etc.

Now just put the character for moon 月 after a number and you’ve got a month.

 漢字 – Kanji ひらがな – Hiragana Romaji (English Letters) English Meaning 一月 いちがつ ichigatsu January 二月 にがつ nigatsu February 三月 さんがつ sangatsu March 四月 しがつ shigatsu April …etc.
