Swahili - Six, seven, eight, nine, ten

We learned in Swahili that 1-5 is moja, mbili, tatu, nne, tano.
Now let's count up to ten!

6 sita - sounds like see-tah - 文A

7 saba - sounds sah-bah - 文A

8 nane - sounds like nah-nay - 文A

9 tisa - sounds like tee-sah - 文A

10 kumi - sounds like koo-mee - 文A

(from: wikipedia - swahili language)
