Chinese Numbers

The Chinese number system is simple and straightforward. There are so many words to describe the figures and Spanish (where we have different words for numbers from zero to sixteen and for the tens, twenty, thirty, forty ...). You can notice that many simbols seem to Japanese Numbers, but don't confuse, because they're very different.
