The construction of larger numbers from 10 to 99 is relatively simple. For example, the Japanese equivalent of "35" is "san zhu go", and the equivalent of "87" is "hachi zhu shichi". Simply say the word for the tens digit, then the word for "ten," and then the word for the units digit.

In class the only numbers which you are likely to hear are those from one to ten.
