    2………………………………………………………………………………………………...dos

    3………………………………………………………………………………………………...tres

    4…………………………………………………………………………………………......cuatro

    5……………………………………………………………………………………………...cinco

    6……………………………………………………………………………………………......seis

    7……………………………………………………………………………………………….siete

    8…………………………………………………………………………………………….....ocho

    9……………………………………………………………………………………………...nueve

    10……………………………………………………………………………………………....diez

    One through Nine are absolutely critical—master them!

    11-15

    11…………………………………………………………………………………..…………..once

    12……………………………………………………………………………………..………..doce

    13………………………………………………………………………………………..……..trece

    14……………………………………………………………………………………….……catorce

    15………………………………………………………………………………………….....quince

    Eleven through Fifteen are tricky—spend extra time on them.

    16-19

    16…………………………………………………………………………………..…….....dieciséis*

    17…………………………………………………………………………………………..diecisiete

    18…………………………………………………………………………………………..dieciocho

    19……………………………………………………………………………………….…diecinueve

    *When a single-digit one-through-nine number (2, 3, 6) is attached to another, it takes an accent.

    20-29

    20…………………………………….…veinte 25………………………………...…veinticinco

    21……………………………..……veintiuno** 26………………………………….…veintiséis

    22…………………………………….veintidós 27………………………….……...…veintisiete

    23…………………………………….veintitrés 28…………………….………......…veintiocho

    24………………………………….veinticuatro 29……………………………......…veintinueve

    **When a masculine noun immediate follows “uno,” the –o drops and the u take an accent.

    - Tengo veintiún años.

    The –e in veinte changes to an “i” when connecting a 1-9 number. This mimics the “and” sound: “y.”

    30-39

    30…………………………………….…treinta 35………………………………...treinta y cinco

    31……………………………...treinta y uno** 36………………………………….treinta y seis

    32………………………………...treinta y dos 37………………………………….treinta y siete

    33………………………………...treinta y tres 38………………………………...treinta y ocho

    34………………………………treinta y cuatro 39……………………………….treinta y nueve

    Once we get to “treinta,” things get much easier: Thirty and one, thirty and two…. Thirty and six... etc.

    40-100

    40…………………….……………….cuarenta 70…………………….…………....……setenta

    50…………………….………………cincuenta 80…………………….………..………ochenta

    60…………………….……………...…sesenta 90…………………….…………..……noventa

    100………………………………………………………………………………………..………cien

    That pattern continues for the rest of the “tens”

    Note

    “Cien” works for 100 “on the dot” only. We will see larger numbers later, but it is worth noting that after 100 (101, etc), “hundred” is “ciento.”
