    22 "twenty two"

    Is it possible to write 22 as 'twenty two', without a dash?
    I'm curious because I've heard from a 10-year-old child that the teacher told them that they could write such numbers with or without a dash.
    For me it has always been "twenty-two". Maybe it is some kind of a simplification for children. But what's the point of it?

    IMO, no, it's not correct.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
