Numbers are essential to any language learning and no doubt you’ve been using them since day one. Below is a reminder of numbers between 1-1000 including a million and a billion.
|1 - un||11 - onze|
|2 - deux||12 - douze|
|3 - trois||13 - treize|
|4 - quatre||14 - quatorze|
|5 - cinq||15 - quinze|
|6 - six||16 - seize|
|7 - sept||17 - dix-sept|
|8 - huit||18 - dix-huit|
|9 - neuf||19 - dix-neuf|
|10 - dix||20 - vingt|
After twenty, numbers tend to get trickier. Which ones have hyphens and which don't?
Here is one that takes no hyphen:
For numbers 22-29, (vingt-deux up to vingt-neuf) remember the hyphen!
And also for others, for example:
Note: Here it’s literally sixty add ten.
Note: Here it’s literally sixty add eleven.
Note: Here it’s literally four times twenty plus eleven.
Notice how here 101 is cent un, NOT cent et un.
