English common error: wrong pronunciation after a decimal point

Many of my students over the years, especially Spanish speaking ones, pronounce numbers wrongly after a decimal point. They treat the numbers after a decimal as one when actually each individual number after a decimal point should be pronounced. So, you must not pronounce the series of numbers after decimal point as one individual number. For example, to pronounce the number โ€˜5.567โ€™, we do not say โ€˜five point five hundred and sixty-sevenโ€™. You have to say โ€˜five point five six sevenโ€™. Similarly '69.981' would be 'sixty nine point nine eight one'. This is standard UK English. This applies to all numbers after a decimal point. It is possible that you will find variations with native English spoken in other parts of the world although as an 11 year English teacher and a holder of a Master in Translation, I have never heard any variation.
