Numbers 6-10

I'm looking for languages in which some or all of the numbers 6-10 are
compositions of 1+5, 2+5, etc. I would prefer cases where this is
relatively transparent but I'll be more than happy to receive any data
and/or references pertaining to such structures.

Teaching Tenses

Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I am doing a study on the various methods of teaching English tenses
as opposed to the traditional method. I am looking for any
descriptions and/or lesson plans implementing the various methods
(such as Alan Huffman's) and the success or failure of such methods.
This would be any approach to teaching English tenses that alters the
traditional 12 tenses: simple present, present progressive, simple
past, past progressive, simple future, future progressive, present
perfect, present perfect progressive, past perfect, past perfect
progressive, future perfect and future perfect progressive.

Thanks in advance,
