1 일 [il]
2 이 [i]
3 삼 [sam]
4 사 [sa]
5 오 [o]
6 륙 [ryuk] or 육 [yuk
7 칠 [chil]
8 팔 [pal]
9 구 [gu]
10 십 [sip]

And the rest is easy.

In Korean, if you want to say 11, you just say TEN + ONE.

If you want to say 33, you just say THREE + TEN + THREE.

If you want to say 99, you say NINE + TEN + NINE.

100 [baek] 1,000 [cheon]

Can you guess how to say 312 in Korean?

Yes, you are right.

THREE + HUNDRED + TEN + TWO

삼 +백 + 십 + 이
[sam-baek-sip-i]

Some more examples
1,234 = 1,000 (천) + 2 (이) + 100 (백) + 3 (삼) + 10 (십) + 4 (사)

512 = 5 (오) + 100 (백) + 10 (십) + 2 (이)

Note that for 1,000, 100, and 10, you don't have to say one (일) + thousand (천), 일백, or 일십.
