Counting in Igbo is one of the topics covered in the Igbo101 app. Counting plays a significant role in everyday conversations as I’m currently learning with my private Igbo lessons. The good news is counting in Igbo is easy! That’s because Igbo counting follows a simple trend. For numbers 1 – 99, simply follow 3 simple steps below:
- Learn to count 1 to 10
- To get the tens 20, 30, 40…90, simply combine ‘Iri (10)’ with numbers 2, 3, 4…9
- To get the rest, combine the Tens with ‘na (and)’ and the numbers 1 to 9.
