How to Count from 11 to 100 in Korean

Last Updated: 

Before going through this post, make sure you know how to count from 0 to 10 in Korean!

 

You will have to learn both the Native Korean and Sino-Korean numbering systems up to the number 100, since both systems are used up to this number. Let's get started!

11 to 100 in the Native Korean Numbering System

11 → Yeol-hana (열하나)

10 in the Native Korean numbering system is Yeol (열), so from the numbers 11 to 19, you will just have to add the numbers -1 to -9 to it.

e.g. Yeol (열) + hana (하나) = Yeol-hana (열하나)

Also remember, you would have to "drop the last letter" in numbers ending with -1, -2, -3, -4 as well as the number 20 in the Native Korean numbering system when pairing it with a count noun. So that means, numbers like 11, 12, 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 31, 32, 33, 34, and so on will result in a pattern like this:

e.g. Yeol-hana (열하나) + sal (살) = Yeol-han sal (열한살) ‘Eleven years old’

Review this concept more in the previous lesson:

12 → Yeol-dul (열둘)

13 → Yeol-set (열셋)

14 → Yeol-net (열넷)

15 → Yeol-daseot (열다섯)

16 → Yeol-yeoseot (열여섯)

17 → Yeol-ilgop (열일곱)

18 → Yeol-yeodeol (열여덟)

19 → Yeol-ahop (열아홉)

20 → Seumeul (스물)

30 → Seoreun (서른)

40 → Maheun (마흔)

50 → Swin (쉰)

60 → Yesun (예순)

70 → Ilheun (일흔)

80 → Yeodeun (여든)

90 → Aheun (아흔)

100 → On (온)

 

11 to 100 in the Sino-Korean Numbering System

11 → Sip-il (십일)

When counting from 11 to 100 in the Sino-Korean numbering system, the mechanism is similar to the Native Korean one. Simply add the numbers -1 to -9 to it. 10 in the Sino-Korean numbering system is Sip (십), so eleven is simply:

e.g. Sip (십) + il (일) = Sip-il (십일)

12 → Sip-i (십이)

13 → Sip-sam (십삼)

14 → Sip-sa (십사)

15 → Sip-o (십오)

16 → Sip-yuk (십육)

17 → Sip-chil (십칠)

18 → Sip-pal (십팔)

19 → Sip-gu (십구)

20 → I-ship (이십)

30 → Sam-sip (삼십)

40 → Sa-sip (사십)

50 → O-sip (오십)

60 → Yuk-sip (육십)

70 → Chil-ship (칠십)

80 → Pal-sip (팔십)

90 → Gu-sip (구십)

100 → Baek (백)
