Croatian numbers 1-100
Cardinal numbers will be displayed in tables below. Main usage of cardinal numbers are to convey the "how many". Besides that, they are also known as "counting numbers". Keep this in mind - when it comes to cardinal number above twenty, you should just add the conjunction "i". For instance: twenty three - dvadeset i tri - consisted of number twenty (dvadeset) + and (i) + three ( tri).
0,1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90
|Numbers in English||Numbers in Croatian|
|twenty one||dvadeset i jedan|
|twenty two||dvadeset i dva|
|thirty two||trideset i dva|
Here are a few examples:
- Imam dva brata - I have two brothers.
- Jučer sam pojeo jednu jabuku! - Yesterday, I ate one apple.
- Mislio sam da je dva plus dva, četiri. - I thought two plus two is four.
Croatian numbers 100 - 10 000
100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000, 2000, 10000
They are also known as "counting numbers" but less used. Keep this in mind - when it comes to numbers above one hundred - you should just add ordinal number + hundred. For instance: three hundred in Croatian would be - tri stands for three and sto stands for hundred.
Pay attention that compared to English, ordinal numbers in Croatian are written combined.
|Numbers in English||Numbers in Croatian|
|two thousand||tri tisuće|
|ten thousand||deset tisuća|
Comparing to cardinal numbers, ordinal numbers tell the order of things in a set: first, second, fifteenth. Ordinal numbers do not show the quantity, whereas cardinal do. Below they will be displayed in a table. You should memorize them in order to develop your Croatian vocabulary. It is the same rule as for cardinal numbers, they consist of a number ( dvadeset) + and (i) + i ( as an ending).
|Ordinal numbers||Redni brojevi|

I would like to outline my extensive experience, qualifications, and expertise in teaching English, Italian and Croatian (native). I believe I... possess the skills, qualifications and vital experience necessary for the role, but also the passion and dedication to lead students to succeed.I have over 10 years’ experience as an English teacher (including 2 years teaching in China in private training centers and a couple of months of online teaching), working with children aged 3 - 18 in schools and in a kindergarten. I taught also adults and offered private English lessons, too. In addition, I have a degree in English and Italian language and literature and am fluent in both as well as a native Croatian speaker. My previous work involved me traveling internationally, where I worked as an interpreter - in this role I worked under pressure and had to adapt to the culture of the country and I feel confident that I could apply that to this job. In my previous teaching roles, I took a resourceful and creative approach to teaching, organising competitions, field trips, and other activities in the aim of making learning a fun experience, and I believe that this approach was successful in seeing students achieving high results.I am extremely dedicated and reliable, with a strong passion for language.
