1 | We assume you have already learnt numbers up to 20 before taking this lesson. | en | ||

2 | We will now go through counting up to 100. | en | ||

3 | Most of it is very logic and simple, except the seventies and up, which follow a specific pattern. | en | ||

4 | Do you remember how to say 20? | en | ||

5 | vingt | de | ||

6 | And here is 30: | en | ||

7 | trente | de | ||

8 | 40 | en | ||

9 | Quarante | de | ||

10 | 50 | en | ||

11 | Cinquante. | de | ||

12 | 60 | en | ||

13 | Soixante. | de | ||

14 | We'll leave the higher ones out for now. | en | ||

15 | From 20 to 70, numbers are simply said like 'dozens-units'. | en | ||

16 | For instance: 23 is: | en | ||

17 | vingt-trois | de | ||

18 | and 57: | en | ||

19 | cinquante-sept | de | ||

20 | The "dozen and one" numbers are slightly different for phonetics reasons, like 41: | en | ||

21 | Quarante-et-un | de | ||

22 | Notice the "et" between dozens and units. | en | ||

23 | Can you guess how to say 61? | en | ||

24 | soixante-et-un | de | ||

25 | Now try to say 39 | en | ||

26 | trente-neuf | de | ||

27 | how about 26? | en | ||

28 | vingt-six | de | ||

29 | Now let's add the seventies. | en | ||

30 | In French, 70 is said as "sixty-ten": | en | ||

31 | soixante-dix | de | ||

32 | And from there, you keep counting, 71 is 'sixty-and-eleven': | en | ||

33 | soixante-et-onze | de | ||

34 | 72 will be 'sixty-twelve': | en | ||

35 | soixante-douze | de | ||

36 | And so on up to 79. Can you guess 79? | en | ||

37 | soixante-dix-neuf. | de | ||

38 | 80 is yet another logic. It's four times 20, or: | en | ||

39 | quatre-vingt | de | ||

40 | Numbers from 81 to 99 then follow a similar logic to the ones from 61 to 79. | en | ||

41 | That is, 80-1, 80-2 up to 80-10 and then 80-11 to 80-19, which is 99. | en | ||

42 | From those explanations, can you guess how to say 82? | en | ||

43 | quatre-vingt-deux | de | ||

44 | How would you say 90? (or 80-10 in french logic) | en | ||

45 | quatre-vingt-dix | de | ||

46 | And now 96? (remember it's said as 80-16) | en | ||

47 | quatre-vingt-seize | de | ||

48 | And to finish off, this is how you say 100: | en | ||

49 | cent. | de | ||

50 | As a side note, you may notice that people in Belgium and Switzerland use a slightly different counting system. | en | ||

51 | We will cover these differences in a separate lesson. | en |
