I have prepared this video to give you a better understanding of how to read or say international monetary amounts. They are commonplace in the newspaper, and present a small challenge when learning how to read them properly. This advice can also be used for writing amounts of money properly as well. The Acronym (symbol representing the currency eg. USD, US$, TWD, TW$) is written before the amount, but actually pronounced after the number is said. That’s the most important trick. The other trick is that there are often different accepted ways to say the acronym.
