Thank you for posting, it looks like you're referring to native Korean numbers. Native Korean numbers are widely used--to state your age, to count things, etc. Sino Korean numbers are usually used for numbers (phone number, counting money, time (NOT hours, but minutes and seconds. You would use native Korean numbers for 'hour'.) We have lessons focusing on pure Korean numbers as well, try going to the search function and typing in numbers, and you'll be able to access various lessons on numbers.

How do I say I am twelve years old?

Thanks for posting. Native Korean and Sino Korean numbers are used in different situations. A few things to remember:
For numbers above 100, use Sino-Korean
For hour time ("o'clock"), age, and with Korean counters, native Korean numbers are used, while minutes, seconds, months, years, phone numbers, money will be in Sino Korean numbers.
