In any language and culture, numbers are an essential part of everyday life, but when you are learning a new language, learning numbers can be a bit of a challenge because the names of the numbers and related terms may be drastically different. You may also have to look at numbers and equations in a slightly different way than you are used. The only way to make this process easier is to actively practice using numbers in the language you are learning. Luckily, the function of numbers and the operations in which you can use them are universal, making the concept of numbers the same in every language!
