How To Count From One To Ten In Different Languages (With Audios)

My online friends and I wanted to show you how to count from one to ten in different languages. So we created a challenge in order to make it happen. The challenge would include audios to showcase how we pronounce them in our own accent. Are you ready?

Here is the challenge:
