Video Description: The teacher demonstrates the “ze” pattern in the teen numbers. This is one distinct advantage that french has over English. The pattern in the teen numbers is consistent to sixteen. Then when the pattern changes at 17 the number is said with the large part first (dix-sept as opposed to seventeen which is said backwards in English). In french the works for 11 – 16 all contain the sound of the original number so “deux and douze” have the same beginning sound. In English two and twelve are not the same sound because the ‘w’ is not pronounced in both words so twelve is harder to learn. The teacher also demonstrates how to add ten to a number. The place value cards are connected to the ten-frame cards.
