[Localization] localization question about numbers

I am developing an activity for pre-literate number acquisition.  I have 
several questions.

1.  Do you use a number system other than base 10 (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) in 
your locality?

2.  Do your numbers have attributes like gender or type or use?

3.  Are your numbers displayed in Aribic (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) or are they 
displayed in your local language?

4.  Is there anything else about numbers in your area that I need to know?

Thank you very much for considering my questions.  I hope, with your help, to 
make an activity that is easily localized to your area.
