Numbers in Spanish 1-1000

 

Regardless if you are thinking about flirting with a native

Spanish speaker or enhancing your Spanish to attain a

basic conversational fluency, understanding the

Numbers in Spanish 1-1000 is an important topic

that will help students in everyday life.

 

Learning about the numbers should be one of the first

things to review in order to interact with native Spanish

speakers in a broad range of scenarios, and that is what

this article will be about.

 

 

Spanish numbers 1-1000 - ready to begin

 

Even though it may seem like  a difficult topic at first, 

understanding the numbers in Spanish is easier 

if you take the time to spot the predictable patterns

that may be observed in the Spanish numbers

from 1 to 1000.

 

 

In this article, we will begin by reviewing  the numbers

in Spanish from 1 to 30, then the numbers from 1 to 100 

and finally; the Spanish numbers 1-1000.

 

 

Numbers in Spanish 1-1000

 

Let’s begin by looking at the  numbers in Spanish from 1-100.

 

Initially we will look at the numbers in Spanish 1-30

in detail, and later on we will continue with the rest

of the numbers all the way to 1000.

 

This initial set is particularly important because it is the

least regular section of numbers. After number 30,

all numbers in Spanish follow highly predictable patterns.

Just make sure to be patient and don’t be discouraged.

Remember, after 30, it all gets really easy.

 

Numbers in Spanish 1-10:

 

1 – uno

2 – dos

3 – tres

4 – cuatro

5 – cinco

6 – seis

7 – siete

8 – ocho

9 – nueve

10 – diez

 

Here is a Video with the pronunciation of these numbers:

Pay special attention to this first batch of numbers because they

are the foundation for all other numbers. It is particularly important

you understand these 10 numbers before moving on. Make sure to

watch the video a few times until everything is clear.

 

 

 

Now, let’s look at the numbers in Spanish from 11 to 20

This is arguably the hardest set of numbers in Spanish, because

many of them do not follow concise or predictable patterns.

Just power through, the rest of them will be much easier.

 

11 – once

12 – doce

13 – trece

14 – catorce

15 – quince

16 – dieciséis

17 – diecisiete

18 – dieciocho

19 – diecinueve

20 – veinte

 

Here is a clip with the pronunciation of the numbers:

Pay special attention to the numbers between 15 and 20,

the pronunciations are a bit tricky because they are long numbers.

on the right.

over here: Numbers in Spanish 1-30

 

 

Now, let’s review the numbers

from 31 to 100:

 

After number 30, numbers in Spanish show very

consistent and predictable structures.

 

 

These numbers in Spanish are formed by the tens (30, 40,

50 …) followed by the word “y” (which is similar to the

word “and”, it works as a conjunction) and another number

from 1 to 9.

 

 

For example:

 

45 – cuarenta + y + cinco

52 – cincuenta + y + dos

84 – ochenta + y + cuatro

 

 

First, let´s take a look at each 10 number increment

(also known as tens):

 

 10 – diez

20 – veinte

30 – treinta

40 – cuarenta

50 – cincuenta

60 – sesenta

70 – setenta

80 – ochenta

90 – noventa

100 – cien

 

This is how you pronounce the Tens:

 

 

 Now, let’s review all the numbers in Spanish from

number 31 all the way to 100…

 

As promised, things become much more predictable and simpler after number 30. Let´s look at the rest of the numbers…

Spanish numbers 1-1000 - girl Walking

 

Lets look at the numbers from 100 to 1000

 

The next step is learning how to count by hundreds up to

1000 (in 100 unit increments).

 

Pay attention to the fact that the majority of them are

made up of a single number (such as number four)

 and the word “cientos” (cientos means “hundreds”)

attached next to them.

 

In the case of “cuatrocientos” it literally would translate

as “fourhundreds”.

 

 

The only exceptions are for the Spanish number 500

which is spelled as “quinientos”, the number 700

which is spelled as “setecientos” and the number

900 which is a spelled as “novecientos”.

 

 

Let’s look at these numbers in Spanish, the hundreds:

 

100 – cien

200 – doscientos

300 – trescientos

400 – cuatrocientos

500 – quinientos

600 – seiscientos

700 – setecientos

800 – ochocientos

900 – novecientos

1000 – mil

 

 

 

Here is a clip with the pronunciation of the numbers:

 

 

The next step in understanding numbers in spanish

1-1000 is starting with one of the “hundreds”

 

and then add one of the regular numbers in Spanish from 1-100

as described previously,

 

 

Let’s look at some examples:

 

 

137 – ciento treinta y siete

253 – doscientos cincuenta y tres

381 – trescientos ochenta y uno

414 – cuatrocientos catorce

592 – quinientos noventa y dos

640 – seiscientos cuarenta

768 – setecientos sesenta y ocho

875 – ochocientos setenta y cinco

993 – novecientos noventa y tres

1000 – mil
