Numbers

Contents: Numbers in Spanish including audio

We’re going to learn how to count in Spanish. If we know the numbers, we’ll be able to count, tell prices, the time, dates,… Here you have the chance not only to read them, but to also listen to them as often as you want. Repeat each number out loud and learn to count at least up to 10. Little by little you’ll be remembering the numbers and in no time you’ll reach 100 (and more).

Section from 0 to 10

From 0 to 10

Here you have the numbers in Spanish from zero to ten. Like in English, with these numbers you’ll be able to build the rest. Listen carefully to the recordings and repeat each number out loud to help you memorize them:

cero
zero

uno
one

dos
two

tres
three

cuatro
four

cinco
five

seis
six

siete
seven

ocho
eight

nueve
nine

diez
ten

Section From 11 to 19

From 11 to 19

The numbers in Spanish from 11 to 15 are exceptions, from 16 onwards they become alot easier. You simply have to say: diez + number. It’s like in English: number + teen:

once
eleven

doce
twelve

trece
thirteen

catorce
fourteen

quince
fifteen

dieciséis
sixteen

diecisiete
seventeen

dieciocho
eighteen

diecinueve
nineteen

Section From 10 to 100

From 10 to 100

Now we’re going to learn the tens (10, 20, 30,…). Once you know the tens and the units (1, 2, 3,…) you won’t have any problem to say any number in Spanish from 16 to one hundred (see further below):

diez
ten

veinte
twenty

treinta
thirty

cuarenta
forty

cincuenta
fifty

sesenta
sixty

setenta
seventy

ochenta

noventa
ninety

cien
one hundred

Section From 100 to 1000

From 100 to 1000 … and more

Now it’s time for the hundreds (100, 200, 200,…). To form them, simply take the number between 2 and 9 and add “cientos”. (“siete” turns to “sete” and “nueve” to “nove” like with the tens). Careful – 500 is an exception:

one hundred
cien

doscientos
two hundred

trescientos
three hundred

cuatrocientos
four hundred

quinientos
five hundred

seiscientos
six hundred

setecientos
seven hundred

ochocientos
eight hundred

novecientos
nine hundred

mil
one thousand

un millón
one million

Section counting to 1000

How to count up to 1000

Counting up to a thousand in Spanish is very simple. You just have to put one number next to the other and put an “i” in between the tens and the units. For example, to read 765 we have to say the words corresponding to “700”, “60” “i” and “5”:

treinta y cuatro
thirty-four

ciento seis
one hundred and six

doscientos nueve
two hundred and nine

setecientos sesenta y cinco
seven hundred and sixty-five

ochocientos ochenta
eight hundred and eighty
