Los numeros españoles a partir de 21

Numbers 21+

Having already learned the numbers from 0-20, we can now tackle the higher numbers of the Spanish vocabulary. Ready for it to get a little bit complicated?

Let's go! - ¡vámonos!

It is common in Spain to say numbers as double digits, so if you are telling someone your Spanish mobile number, then you need to know how to say it the Spanish way: seis, ocho, nueve, veintitrés, treinta y cinco, ochenta y seis, for example.

The twenties numbers have their own special rule, but the rest of the numbers are formed by saying the ten number and the digit number: forty and one, fifty and six, ninety and nine...

As we count past 100 the numbers change again with the hundred numbers being a hundred singular and those from 200 having a plural ending. Lets take a look so you can count and learn Spanish numbers from 21 onwards.

Continuing with our counting, let's continue with 200 through to a million. Be careful with the number 500, it tends to cause confusion for beginners as it doesn't follow the same rule as the others.
