Counting up to 10 is easy enough, but how about saying 243,167 in Japanese? (Answer: ni-juu-yon man san-zen hyaku roku-juu-nana) The Japanese counting system is based on 10,000, not 1,000, so 243,167 turns into 24 ten-thousands 3 thousands 1 hundred 6 tens 7. It definitely takes practice to get the hang of it!
