Ni ju ichi
2 10 1
Two ten one.

Yeah, it makes sense, the number after tells what type it is (if it's a 10, or a 100, etc).

It's actually san-byaku(300). Almost the same with 600(rop-pyaku)and 800(hap-pyaku). The rest is simply yon-hyaku, go-hyaku etc. What's interesting is that when you count higher, to like a million and stuff, it gets utterly insane. I think hyaku-man is a million. That would mean "a hundred ten thousand" if directly translated into English... Imagine a numer like 2 233 654. That would be, in Japanese: ni-hyaku-ni juu-san-man san-zen rop-pyaku go jū yon. God damn....

Oh yeah, I always forgot that part, sorry!

And they actually have a word for like "A million" and "a billion", but they rarely use it.
Or so my japanese teacher told me.

dude, it's "Shichi" for 7 and "hachi" for 8. They don't say it with "shi" or" si". In fact, they don't even have "si".

I know it's not the spelling. you say "shiCHI" not "shisi". "haCHI" not hashi. If you went around saying it the other way, you would look like a complete idiot.
