Kanji: 五 go five
This is modern art. 五 is an artist’s impression of the number 5. [Well, it kind of looks like the number!]
JLPT N5: 5 / 100 | 4 Strokes
五月 go gatsu—May [the 5th month]
五ヶ月 go ka getsu—five months [So far we have seen that adding a number between 1-12 with gatsu makes the month names. But here is how to say a duration of months: # + ka + getsu—notice it is “getsu” not “gatsu”]
juugo made kazoemasu.
I can count to fifteen.
[The made here means “until” or “up to (fifteen)”]
