      I learnt to count like that in Chi-Nyanja:

      modzi : one
      wiri : two
      tatu : three
      nai : four
      sanu : hand
      sanu ndi modzi : hand-and-one
      sanu ndi wiri : hand-and-two
      sanu ndi tatu : hand-and-three
      sanu ndi nai : hand and-four
      khumi : all-together

      It seemed much more sensible than counting in French :-)
