Put your knowledge of numbers into practice and present your country or town in our forum. Here, you can tell us about where you are from using statistics written as words to apply your numbers knowledge to real life.


Use our spin the wheel tool or downloadable flashcards to land on a topic that you should research. We have selected a wide range of topics from the economy and the environment to clothing and immigration. You can then research this area in your country, city or town, then tell us about it in a video forum.

Use a random number generator to practise saying numbers out loud. Simply click on the generator, review the number you’re given, then practise saying it out loud.

Listen to the population sizes of various countries around the world in an audio. As you listen, you must write down the numbers you hear. As well as numbers practice, you’ll be improving your listening skills too. We provide all the correct answers in a downloadable document.

In this final self-study exercise, we recommend various activities that you can do in town, at work and around the house to help you practise your numbers. You can also help us by letting us know what activities you use to help you review cardinal numbers by writing suggestions in our forum.
