    • Recognize numbers past 100

    Vocabulario: Los números 101-1000+

    366 785 100, 200, and 500 euro bills 850 104

    We’ve already learned to count to 100:
    98 noventa y ocho

    99 noventa y nueve

    100 cien

    101 ciento uno

    Note how the pattern changes slightly: we’re not using y anymore. That’s just to separate the tens place from the ones place. So “one hundred one,” not “one hundred and one.”

    102 ciento dos

    110 ciento diez

    120 ciento veinte

    134 ciento treinta y cuatro (the y is separating the tens place from the ones place)

    200 doscientos

    300 trescientos

    400 cuatrocientos

    500 quinientos

    600 seiscientos

    700 setecientos

    800 ochocientos

    900 novecientos

    1000 mil (Note: Not “un mil,” just “mil“)

    1500 mil quinientos

    2000 dos mil

    4000 cuatro mil

    100.000 cien mil

    1.000.000 un millón
    11.000.000 once millones

    Note: you must use mil to talk about years (this is different from the English way of splitting years into two-digit clusters)

    • (in) 1950 = (en) mil novecientos cincuenta
    • (in) 1821 = (en) mil ochocientos veintiuno
    • 2019 = dos mil diecinueve

    Another note: Most Spanish-speaking countries use a comma to mark the decimal point, and a period or dot to mark the thousands position in long numbers. This is beginning to change somewhat as the English way of punctuating numbers is spreading via the Internet. So you’ll need to be careful not to mistake decimals for thousands!

    $123.456,78 = ciento veintitrés mil cuatrocientos cincuenta y seis dólares con setenta y ocho centavos
