Counting in Spanish
How to count in Spanish?
You just have to know the numerals. Then the way of telling them is similar to the English one. What exactly does it mean? You'll see if you continue below.
0-20 in Spanish
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20
20-30 in Spanish
21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30
30-40 in Spanish
30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40
|31||treinta y uno|
|32||treinta y dos|
|33||treinta y tres|
|34||treinta y cuatro|
|35||treinta y cinco|
|36||treinta y seis|
|37||treinta y siete|
|38||treinta y ocho|
|39||treinta y nueve|
Tens up to a 100
20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100
The tens are enunciated in the same way, as the thirties are represented overhead. For example: 54 = cincuenta y cuatro. Only the twenties make un exception, as it shows the previous table.
100 through 1000 in Spanish
100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000
The hundreds are pronounces as the tens are added after. For example: 559 = quinientos cincuenta y nueve
Thousands and millions
As you already know the word for a thousand in Spanish, now you can verbalize all the thousands. The construction is: the number of the thousands + the number of the hundreds + the number of tens + units. For example: 5596 = cinco mil quinientos noventa y seis.
The word in Spanish for a million is millón. The explanation of verbalizing millions follows the previously mentioned rule: the millions + the thousands + the hundreds + the tens + units. For instance: 5 810 101 = cinco millones ochocientos diez mil ciento uno.
The ordinal arithmetical values vary in gender. In the case of primer and tercer, we use these forms instead of primero and tercero, when they are followed by masculine singular nouns. For example: primer lugar, tercer puesto, primer ministro (first place, third place, Prime Minister).
|Number||Masculine gender||Feminine gender|
