How fast can you count to 50 (in your target language)?
Numbers are often one of the first things we learn when we learn a new language. When I first started learning Chinese, it took me a long long time to count to 50. After learning for a while, it took me a couple of minutes.
Every few months I like to do this quick test, as I find it's a great way to measure my progress (in speaking).
Simply count from 1 to 50 - speaking out loud. Try to avoid mistakes, and use correct pronunciation and intonation where possible.
Today I tried several times, and was able to complete it using Chinese numbers, in 40 seconds or less, each time.
When I did the same thing using English numbers, I could do it in 20 seconds (my native language is English).
How long does it take you, for the language that you are learning?
