    Could someone tell me what this is and please write it in Arabic, so that I can hear what it sounds like?
    "wakhad wa-ashrin sana?"

    Or if you would rather have it in correct Arabic:

    Nom. wāḥidatun wa ʻishrūna sanatan
    Gen. wāḥidatin wa ʻishrīna sanatan
    Acc. wāḥidatan wa ʻishrīna sanatan

    So ayed's answer is wrong? We are talking about Classical/MSA, right?

    Ayed is right!
    We use "wakhad wa-ashrin sana" in colloquial Arabic.
    And the question was about it!
