    Spanish numbers 1 – 1000

    Posted by on August 7, 2017

    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
