Numbers 0-21

If you want to learn Spanish, you are not going to get very far if you don't know how to use numbers!

Imagine getting off to southern Spain to enjoy the warm sunshine and as you prepare to jump out of your taxi in Barcelona, the driver says; "Son setenta y cinco euros". How much money are you going to hand over?

Picture yourself with a beer or cocktail on one of Barcelona's beaches as the sun is setting and you spy a sexy señor or señorita sidling towards you. After a little flirting and small talk they ask you for your "número de teléfono". Can you tell them the right number or are you going to miss out on a hot date?

Below are the numbers from zero to twenty, including pronunciation for those of you who have not had the chance to take a Spanish immersion course in Spain before. They are an essential part of the Spanish vocabulary, for more reasons than the listed above. Give them a look.
