Once you are comfortable with the simple reading of numbers in English, move on to more complex numerals. Numbers 10, 11, 12 are read in English respectively as ten [tɛn], eleven [ ɪˈlɛv(ə)n] , twelve [twɛlv]. Numerals from 13 to 19 are the suffix –teen at the end of each word. For example, 14 is read as fourteen [ˈfɔːtiːn], 16 – sixteen [ˈsɪkstiːn], etc. Such numbers as 20, 30, 40, etc. match the words with the suffix –ty, e.g. 20 – twenty [ˈtwɛnti], 30 - thirty [ˈθəːti]. The words "one hundred", "thousand", "million" in English, sound like a hundred [ˈhʌndrəd], thousand [ˈθaʊz(ə)nd], million [ˈmɪljən], respectively.
