Spanish numbers 1 – 1000

Spanish numbers 1 – 1000

Spanish numbers 1 – 1000

From 1 to 20

Here are the numbers from 1 up to 20

1 – uno
2 – dos
3 – tres
4 – cuatro
5 – cinco
6 – seis
7 – siete
8 – ocho
9 – nueve
10 – diez

11 – once
12 – doce
13 – trece
14 – catorce
15 – quince

After 15 it sounds a lot like 10 plus a number

16 – dieciséis
17 – diecisiete
18 – dieciocho
19 – diecinueve

20 to 29

20 is a new number, veinte

After that, it’s veinti- and another number

21 – veintiuno
22 – veintidós
23 – veintitres
24 – veinticuatro
and so on…

30 to 99

For the multiples of 10, the rule changes just a bit. Lets cover those numbers first.

30 – treinta
40 – cuarenta
50 – cincuenta
60 – sesenta
70 – setenta
80 – ochenta
90 – noventa

To say these numbers that fall between those multiples of 10, you add ‘y’ (and)
For example:

31 treinta y uno

Basically ‘thirty and one’. All the numbers after 30 that don’t fall on a multiple of ten follow this rule.

44 – cuarenta y cuatro
67 – sesenta y siete
52 – cincuenta y dos

Here’s 81-89 to cement the idea.

ochenta y uno
ochenta y dos
ochenta y tres
ochenta y cuatro
ochenta y cinco
ochenta y seis
ochenta y siete 
ochenta y ocho
ochenta y nueve

100 and beyond

When we reach 100 we say ciento. Following that, it’s just one hundred and the next number.

101 ciento uno
102 ciento dos
103 ciento tres
104 ciento cuatro
and so on…

and just like the numbers 31 to 99 using ‘y’ (and) between them and the smaller number (e.g. 31 treinta y uno), you still follow that rule throughout the hundreds.

143 – ciento cuarenta y tres
179 – ciento setenta y nueve
196 – ciento noventa y seis
155 – ciento cincuenta y cinco

Here are the other hundreds. Notice most sound like the number of hundreds it’s counting, with just a couple of exceptions.

200 – doscientos
300 – trescientos
400 – cuatrocientos
500 – quinientos (doesn’t sound like 5 but does sound like quince)
600 – seiscientos
700 – setecientos (like setenta)
800 – ochocientos
900 – novecientos (like noventa)

Knowing this, you can say any number between 101 and 999

365 – trescientos sesenta y cinco
501 – quinientos uno
824 – ochocientos veinte y cuatro
999 – novecientos noventa y nueve

A few more things

For 1000 the number is mil. Zero is cero.

When you use the number 100 for counting, like 100 pens, you use the word cien. So 100 pens is cien plumas.

cien libros
cien zapatas

Also, hundreds from 200 on will take the masculine or feminine ending to match the word it is measuring, like the number 1 (uno) does.

Doscientas plumas
Trescientos articulos
