This lesson should be on top of your list! One of the most useful information would be division between cardinal = glavni brojevi and ordinal numbers = redni brojevi. Be focused, try to concentrate on the lesson and notice the pattern, which occurs each time the word changes its place. Don't forget to check other lessons as well!
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:
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|

Hello everbody, I am an experienced and teaching-passionate language professional offering tailor-made Croatian (all levels), ... General English (Elementary, Beginner's, Intermediate & Upper-intermediate level) and Russian (Elementary & Intermediate level) Conversation lessons as well as Business English. The lessons are structured ccording to student's needs with a variety of interesting topics. A range of different teaching materials is used. I tend to apply mostly visual aids as, according to my experience, they help students most in memorising new words and language structures. During the lessons we are focusing on further development of communication skills but we are also exploring vocabulary, grammar and culture. We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable. As an open and friendly person with an international family and experience of life in other countries, I enjoy meeting people of other cultures. I would be happy to get a chance to help people all over the world to learn the languages I teach. Perhaps you as well? Welcome! Dobro došli! Добро пожаловать! Welkom! Read more
