Can you count to ten?
I know the title sounds a little wierd, so i'll explain.
DS has some social issues and we've been advised he needs to find a way to slow down and think before he speaks/acts. Counting to 10 should work, but he does it too easily and too fast for it to be as effective as it should be. So the new plan is to teach him to count in as many languages as possible, and that is where all of you come in. Can any of you supply me with any languages you know. So far we have English (well durr!), french, german, spanish, swahilli and gaelic. Can anyone add to that list? The ideal format would be the number, the spelling and the pronounciation, eg
1 one (wun)
2 two (too)
3 three (th-ree)
4 four (f-or)
etc. up to 10
then i can make them up into flash cards.
Thanks in advance everyone xxx

Since you already have French, I can give you Italian. AJ helped.

Here is Hawaiian:
I hawaiian vowels generally sound the same, no matter their placement and the ' mark indicates emphasis on the letter. Hope this helps, Fiona.

4. 'Arr-buh (hard 'A' sound, like a grunt--roll the R's a little)
5. Kham-suh (that 'Kh' needs to get some phlegm into it, like you're clearing the throat)
10. 'Ash-rruh (same rules for the hard 'A' and the R's as 4)
She said she had Spanish already.
