Practice the conversation; study the notes; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Do you divide numbers the same way we do in English: every three numbers, counting from the right?
2. How do you say these numbers in your language: hundred, thousand, million, billion, trillion?
3. Write some more long numbers (7 or more digits) and practice saying them correctly in English. Be sure to use some zeroes in different places
